"The global sports and outdoor industry is not like other industries, and companies that operate in this highly international and competitive environment need their managers to adapt their knowledge to the particular dynamics of their market.
In response to the specific recruitment needs of this continuously growing industry, EMLYON Business School successfully unites its expertise in international management with the market experience of some of the world’s major outdoor sports companies in the MSc in Sports and Outdoor Industry Management.
As a student of this programme, you will acquire fundamental management knowledge that will form the basis of your profession, specialist skills and techniques necessary for success in this industry, and broad knowledge of the dynamics in the sports and outdoor market. In addition, the module on EMLYON’s Asian campus in Shanghai will add both an international experience as well as business knowledge of this fast-growing region to your resume.
Though job openings in this industry are known to be highly competitive, and the market is characterised by a very low staff turn over rate as well as a preference for internal hiring, the outlook for jobs remains very strong. The MSc in Sports and Outdoor Industry Management is set up specifically to help you successfully face those challenges and start your career in international management in this highly coveted industry.
I look forward to welcoming you to the programme."
