Paris partners up with Sports Management School

In this important year for French sport, Paris Saint-Germain Handball is stepping up its investment in the world of sport business and education through a new partnership with a key educational player, Sports Management School (SMS). This exclusive partnership will link the Paris club to SMS for the next three years.

This partnership is of paramount importance to Paris Saint-Germain Handball, offering professional players and future employees in the sporting ecosystem a privileged route to academic and professional excellence. Working with SMS opens up new prospects for students, giving them privileged access to internship and employment opportunities within the Club.


Students from the Sports Management School will be actively involved in the organisation of major sporting events. Their involvement as volunteers will enable them to gain valuable experience and contribute to the success of the projects.


In addition, this partnership will enable us to collaborate closely on innovative academic initiatives, offering students the opportunity to work on real-life Paris Saint-Germain Handball issues. This proximity to the Club will also enable them to meet the players and benefit from their invaluable advice on the demands of top-level sport.


At the same time, the Sports Management School is making its expertise available to the Paris-based organisation by offering courses dedicated to top-level sportsmen and women (Bachelor's and MBA), providing them with the educational background they need to make a smooth professional transition and solid preparation for their future.


Paris Saint-Germain Handball is delighted with this promising collaboration with the Sports Management School, which reinforces our commitment to sporting and academic excellence. Together, we are determined to shape the future of sport and inspire the next generation of sports leaders.


Thierry Omeyer, General Manager of the Paris Saint-Germain Handball section, added: "The partnership between Paris Saint-Germain Handball and SMS Business School Paris embodies the spirit of excellence we seek at all levels. Whether from an academic or sporting point of view, we share the same ambition to push back the boundaries and reach new heights. Together, we want to cultivate an environment where the quest to surpass oneself and the quest for knowledge are valued, providing students and athletes with the tools they need to excel in all areas of life."


David Mignot, Academic Director of the Sports Management School, said: "I am convinced that this collaboration between the academic world with the Sports Management School and professional sport with Paris Saint-Germain Handball will open up new avenues for training the next generation of sports managers, ready to meet the challenges and seize the opportunities of future major national and international sporting events. I look forward to seeing the fruits of this partnership in the years to come."
