The Sport Management and Sport Diplomacy master classes were conducted by Mr. Roland Louvet.
Diplomacy helps bridge gaps between nations through sports. The Olympics is the best example of sport bringing nations, even those that are politically distant, together. Diplomacy in Sports is an integral part of the curriculum at MBA ESG. The master classes by Mr. Louvet offered a helpful understanding of diplomacy through real-time discussions and models.
Mr. Roland presented a case study of finance and how to manage it. He discussed the Olympics and how India can host the Games in the future. There was extensive dialogue regarding infrastructure development in India and a financial comparison was drawn between India and Europe. He also explained upcoming possible developments in Indian sports and how it can advance to Olympic levels in the upcoming years.
What made the sessions enjoyable were the discussions on trends in the Olympics, future finance options, and real-time case studies.
By showcasing comparative finance models in Asia, Europe, and America, we were able to gauge how all are different from each other. The real-time examples and problem-solving sessions on realistic issues in the sports industry truly set the session a class apart from the rest.
