Bachelor thesis written at ISTO by Tim Hermes published in Junior Management Science
The bachelor thesis of Tim Hermes, titled “The Impact of Community Involvement on Game Life-Cycle: Evidence-based on Gaming Platform Steam”, has been published in the latest issue of Junior Management Science. Tim has studied Business Administration at LMU Munich and was a student research assistant at ISTO during Summer 2020. His work, supervised by our former postdoc Ambre Nicolle, empirically explores how the involvement of a community of users through specific features of a product can affect its life cycle. More precisely, it investigates how prices of digital videogames are impacted, at release, and over time, by the possibility for gamers to exchange user-generated content, trade virtual items, and share information related to their achievements. Congratulations Tim!
