ABS Paris is certified “Génération 2024” by the French government
The American Business School of Paris is now certified “Génération 2024” by the Ministries of Education, Youth and Sports, and Higher Education, Research and Innovation. It is not only a great honor for our school but a true recognition of our strong commitment to the collaboration of education and sports.
WHAT IS THE GENERATION 2024 CERTIFICATION?
As part of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Ministries of Education, Youth and Sports, and Higher Education, Research and Innovation have set up a certification program that aims to build bridges between the academic world and the sports sphere in order to encourage young people to regularly exercise and actively participate in sports. Thanks to the tremendous momentum inspired by the Olympic and Paralympic Games, this program aims to develop sports-related projects in which young people create and strengthen collaborations between sports and studies.
A CERTIFICATION OF RECOGNITION AND VISIBILITY
Generation 2024 is a recognition of an institution’s commitment to promoting sports-related activities for students. It provides greater visibility to institutions and the various events they organize. In addition, the Generation 2024 platform brings together a set of resources made available to better mobilize and support educational institutions in carrying out their projects.
ABS PARIS’ INITIATIVES IN FAVOR OF SPORT
Thanks to the Generation 2024 certification, the American Business School of Paris has received recognition for its initiatives to create a collaboration between sports and studies. Indeed, for several years now, ABS Paris has been committed to helping students combine their sports practice with their professional ambitions through three initiatives:
• The Bachelor in Sports Management program allows students interested in participating in sports or just enjoying the world of sports, to earn a dual degree in sports management. The program is 100% in English and therefore opens the doors to the international world – allowing students to consider a career in the largest organizations in the sports world.
• The Sports Academy is an individualized program designed for each athlete. It allows students to combine sports, higher education, and internships thanks to the flexible course schedules. Students can enroll in five programs recognized and accredited in France as well as the United States; thus earning a dual degree while remaining an active athlete.
• The partnership with the Centre Sportif Haut Niveau du Val d’Oise (CFDAS) allows our athletic students to gain access to a 17-acre sports campus equipped with modern training facilities. It will also offer meals and accommodation to welcome the athletes in the best possible ways. Last but not least, the CDFAS has been selected to host the US Olympic Team at the 2024 Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games.
