Programme

Editorial -

Every day, we receive on average 3,000 advertising messages, of which we will probably only remember four or five. The question is then to know what brands should do to survive in such a hyper-competitive environment, saturated as it is with commercial information.

Communication associated with events can then generate a retention rate then times higher than what traditional advertising methods can achieve. As a result, communication spendings on events account for over 7% of overall communication budgets, a figure that has been growing fast lately.

Located in Paris and given entirely in English, this programme will train you to work in the events industry, whether in the organisation or the promotion of events for the general public or for professionals.

This programme offers:

- Advanced level input by international lecturers (UK, Australia, Italy, ...);
- Field experience thanks to Challenge Projects, Junior Consulting Projects, and in-company work placements;
- Meetings with Events Communication professionals, whether in Paris, or Las Vegas (USA) for seminar abroad.
- If you wish to take part in a programme that blends theoretical knowledge and those competencies required for a career in Events Management, then this is the one for you, and we will be glad to welcome you.


Professionalisation -

The programme fosters the development of students' competencies and network:

- One 5-week Junior Consulting Project (Pédagogie HEC Entrepreneurs) focused on the organisation or promotion of an event. Students work in teams of 3 or 4 on a real-life issue facing a company, identified and validated by the programme faculty;
- Three 2-week ‘Challenges': groups work on a real-life issue submitted by a company. Projects are Events related in a B2B or B2C context. One Challenge is scheduled right at the start of the programme;
- A Career Path Scheme to help students build their professional projects (personality tests, individual coaching, preparation for recruitment interviews,... );
- Two 1-week seminars in Paris & Las Vegas (USA) comprising professional meetings,
- One work placement/internship from May to December (4 to 6 months).

Professionals with a qualifying law degree who are interested in broadening their understanding of the global sports industry can now pursue an M.S. in Sports Management and a Master in Global Sports Law together.

Columbia University, a world-class Ivy League institution, and Instituto Superior de Derecho y Economía (ISDE), a Madrid-based leader in legal education, offer a companion degree program for individuals with a law background who are interested in a career in international sports.

Intensive study for the two professional degrees — Columbia’s Master of Science (M.S.) in Sports Management and ISDE’s Master in Global Sports Law — is completed on Columbia’s campus in New York City, the sports capital of North America, for 10 months during the fall, spring, and summer terms. Courses provide foundational instruction on the sports industry combined with specific training in sports (accounting, finance, marketing, personnel management, and analytics) and law (intellectual property law and alternative dispute resolution).

After successfully completing their coursework, students pursue a 3-to-6-month internship with a global sports law firm, agency, team, league, or regulatory body, based on their academic profile and professional goals.

Both degree programs are taught by renowned faculty from Columbia and ISDE who are leaders in the fields of sports law, sports analytics, sports media, as well as professional and collegiate athletics.

Guest lecturers are among the world sporting community’s most respected lawyers, agents, and managers. Networking events and practical workshops held at leading law firms and sports organizations in New York City complement the coursework.

Students in the program have access to the same academic and administrative benefits as other full-time Columbia students and are provided placement services by ISDE. In addition to the academically rigorous curriculum, the program offers students outstanding networking opportunities with peers at Columbia and ISDE, colleagues from across the Ivy League, and industry leaders.

Graduates will be prepared to effectively engage and excel at the responsibilities necessary for success at the next phases of their careers.
