The Indo-French Business School, also known as XEBS or XAVIER-EMLYON Business School, was created through a partnership between XIM University in Bhubaneswar and the Emlyon business school in France.

Aim of the International Sports Management Program

The International Sports Management Program aims to equip students for success in India's rapidly expanding sports industry by giving them particular skill sets, business knowledge, and exposure to other cultures. For the first time, India's sports spending surpassed Rs 14,000 crore, according to the 2023 GroupM ESP India Sports Sponsorship Report. The GoI's support for Khelo India and NSF's recent record financing of Rs 3397.32 crore at the most recent union budget sessions has increased the demand for professional expertise in the sports business, according to the release.

Conclusion

The sports business is expected to expand, leading to significant demand for qualified professionals to manage sports organisations and events and seize new opportunities like virtual sports, gaming, and more. The International Sports Management program at XEBS has explicitly been designed to give a top-notch curriculum and global exposure to meet this growing demand.
