The Audencia Nantes School of Management, located in West of France, will launch a new part-time MBA program in International Sports Management in Paris starting 2015.
The new program was designed based on the Audencia's Specialized Master (Mastère Spécialisé) in Management of Sports Organisations. Courses will be taught in English and French at the Tour Montparnasse in Paris. Students will meet once a month during three days over two years. They will follow a course module at Loughborough University in London and attend a seminar at the Escola Superior de Propaganda e Marketing (ESPM) in Sao Paulo.
Eligible applicants must have at least three years of work experience and hold at least a bachelor's degree. Fifteen candidates will be selected for the first intake.
It is the only accredited MBA program dedicated to the sports industry in Europe with the University of Liverpool's Football Industries MBA. According to a PricewaterhouseCoopers report, worlwide revenues in the global sports industry will rise 3.7% to $145 billion in 2015.
