It is with great anticipation and excitement that we announce emlyon business school's new Summer Schools focused on the sport industry kicking-off July 2022. This unique format will provide participants an insight into the challenges facing the sport industry and its management, a unique opportunity to meet with renowned experts in the field, and lastly a chance to build or expand a professional network in this sector.

The two Summer Schools are uniquely designed for different audiences: an executive audience will benefit from the Executive Sport Industry Summer School and a student audience is meant for the Sport Industry Summer School.

Executive Sport Industry Summer School

This Executive Education program is meant for sport managers, athletes in transition, or leaders seeking a deeper understanding of the latest developments in sports.
