Currently enrolled in MSc 1 Sport Management on the campus in Chambéry, Maël Rolland is also doing a work-study program at the GF38 soccer club. As a Sales Assistant.
This sports enthusiast in general and soccer in particular tells us about his background, and everything he can learn in class.

Maël obtained a baccalaureate ES, with honors, at the Lycée Bertholet in Annecy. Then, he went on to complete three years of studies in Economics and Management at the IAE Savoie Mont-Blanc University. Finally, he started a Bac+4 in Sport Management at Inseec Campus Chambéry. Always within the Pays de Savoie!

” INSEEC brings me added value thanks to subjects related to my profession, such as marketing, sports event organization or communication strategy.

” I can therefore bring my knowledge to my work and be a force of proposal on a daily basis. In addition, this work-study program is a good way to put into practice what I learn in my studies , says the Savoyard student.
Maël wishes to pursue his professional career in a soccer club.

Responsible for the protocol on game nights

On a daily basis, Maël is in charge of the sales assistant. And more specifically, the precise follow-up of the club’s partnerships.

” I study invoices and sponsorship contracts. I follow up on our partners’ payments. I help the sales representatives with tasks such as the realization of partnership proposals, or the reflection and presentation of the new sales brochure. ”

The game weeks are particularly intensive for Maël and his colleagues.

” I am also in charge of the installation of all the VIP areas of the Stadium. I therefore manage several people in civic service, temps and volunteers. As protocol manager, I also set up the match zones. I will take care of the match protocol, as well as the ball boys and escort kids. Finally, I also manage the club’s LinkedIn account. ”

Varied and interesting missions in an environment that is just as interesting…

Later on, Maël would like to move up the ladder and become a marketing manager or general manager.
