“Sports transmit strong values such as setting goals, respecting others and working as a team, in addition to developing qualities such as concentration, posture and commitment. These virtues fully correspond with the IGS Group’s three values: Humanity, Entrepreneurship, and Professional Development, as well as with the American ideal of team spirit and individual responsibility and performance.” Fady Fadel, Director of the American Business School of Paris.
