The ESSEC Sports Chair trains future leaders in sports business and provides them with an understanding of sport as a complex global industry with multiple stakeholders, and of current trends such as new funding models, digital, and e-sports. The Chair also develops future leaders across different industries through “lessons learned” from sport, ranging from the development of individual strengths and values to the effective leadership of groups and teams. Its aim is to become a think tank on the subject of sports management, to create a research community, and produce high-level academic and applied research.
