High-level athletes: 165 students and 112 graduates

Published on
07 June 2019

Women's Football World Cup, Roland Garos Tournament, Tour de France cycling, Men's Rugby World Cup, World Handball Championships... It is game on in 2019! The Grenoble Ecole de Management, Institute of Sport and Management supports high-level athletes in their dual projects.

“The identity of the Grenoble area is closely linked to sports and has been for a very long time. If the reference to the 1968 Olympic Games seems obvious, it is necessary to go back a little further in time to associate the city's development with its athletic character. Grenoble's identity is also, of course, innovation and diversity; for these reasons, the hosting of the Women's World Cup this June is a clear reflection of the identity of the capital of the Alps. This is also what explains the creation of the Institut Sport & Management at Grenoble Ecole de Management. The national and international ambition of the institute cannot be excluded from its local roots: supporting top-level athletes also means bringing together a group of economic partners sensitive to the evolution of the athletes’ careers and the strength of their reputation, at the service of their companies and the region.”

François Leccia, Director of the Sport and Management Institute (IS&M) of Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM))
