“The Stade Français Paris is proud to join forces with ESSEC, an internationally renowned Grande Ecole de Commerce to develop its training for young people and together train those who will help us win tomorrow. The teams that win sustainably are those who think, those who train, those who interact to adapt, those who make diversity an asset and a means to success. We know that better men make better players and we are delighted that ESSEC is now supporting us in achieving our goals. "
Thomas Lombard, General Manager of Stade Français Paris
"The Federation is proud to support the creation of this chair dedicated to sport business and leadership. The sports industry, like basketball, is growing in France and the organization of the Olympic Games in Paris is a fantastic accelerator for our sector. In order to take full advantage of this, it is necessary to train future managers and leaders who know and understand the challenges and the significance of sport in our country. It is with this in mind that the FFBB, itself strongly focused on innovation and development, has chosen to support the ESSEC Sports Chair."
