GENERAL MANAGER

University diploma to become the General Manager of a professionnal sports club

 

This unique training course was created in 1999, in partnership with the national football, basketball, rugby and handball leagues, as well as the French basketball, handball and volley-ball federations. It is recognised by a diploma from the University of Limoges, equivalent to four years further education after the Baccalaureate, which enables former (or current) high-level athletes and trainers to acquire competence in the law, economics and management applied to professional sport.

The general manager finds himself at the interface of the “sporting” and the “administrative” and has to possess not only specific technical skills that result from top-level experience, but also solid knowledge in the aforementioned areas. The training course is arranged in 14 three-day themed sessions, spread over two academic years. Its dual objective is:

  • To allow these top-level athletes and trainers to feel more comfortable in their professional life, by enhancing their knowledge in fields that they do not always master very well, whilst acquiring the basic grounding needed for carrying out their new responsibilities;

  • To enable the professional sectors of the three sports under consideration to benefit from the wealth of the “human capital” that the interested parties have accumulated through their many, various experiences. This is the sign of a training course that corresponds to a real demand: the professional leagues have been won over by it and have accepted to join forces with CDES to fund and organise this training.

As well as academics and CDES contributors, certain exceptionally qualified outside personalities (for example, Jean-Marc Guillou, Michel Hidalgo, Pierre Villepreux and Arsène Wenger) also contribute to this training course. Since its inception, it has already attracted several big names of French sport, including: Zinedine Zidane, Laurent Blanc, Emmanuel Petit and Fabien Pelous (former internationals), Raymond Domenech (former international, the former French football coach), Bernard Gardon (former international), Marc Keller (General Manager of AS Monaco) for football; Patrick Cham (former international, national coach) for basketball; Jean-Marc Lhermet (former captain of AS Montferrand) and Jacques Brunel (coach of the Italian Rugby Team), etc.
