Wladimir Andreff entered sport economy 42 years ago – a time when many of us were not even thinking of this subject. Wladimir studied economics and did his phd dissertations and second phd work and then applied for the French “short track way” to become a full professor. In this elitist nation-wide competitive examination among 150 candidates he became 13th and got a professorship offered in Limoges with being only 30 years old! He participated in 1977 in the launching process of the famous CDES which is a true sport law & management center. In other words, Wladimir Andreff is truly a founder and pioneer of our research field.
After his time in Limoges he was 11 years at the University of Social Sciences of Grenoble. In 1990 he returned to Paris 1, Panthéon Sorbonne University and is there a very active Emeritus Professor until today.
Until today Wladimir wrote 30 books (11 in Sports economics) and 432 articles. His wife Madeleine co-authored about 20 economic papers with Wladimir.
If we take a book by 125 pages only and an article by 15 pages and put all words in one line, this line would reach 73 km.
Since 1973 he was at about 400 scientific conferences of which 187 were abroad including 55 keynote speeches. If we measure not the distance but the time, then the “presenting time” of Wladimir was 5.9 days 24/7.
In his spare time, he is/was Editorial Board member in 25 journals and reviewed endless papers in other journals.
Wladimir traveled a lot. He was involved in extremely many projects with governments and sport federations and was teaching all around the world. Wladimir speaks 5 languages and published in many more.
In his 168 publications in the area of sports management and economics he published a lot about
He managed to connect economics with sport economics and sport economics with sport management – this is why he is the person that deserves to receive the Chelladurai Award. Wladimir, you have a real open mind, a fine character, you are always ready for jokes, precise in critiques and most important supporting many young scholars – Congratulations for this price!
