“A top-level water polo player, Tom Beteille has a good head on his shoulders.
Currently enrolled in MSc 1 Sport Management, which he is studying on the Chambéry campus, the student is also doing a work-study program at the Aix-les-Bains swimming club.
Dive into the world of this student who already has everything of a pro’!
The head… and the legs ! Yes, this maxim can perfectly fit Tom Beteille.
” I did my schooling in Aix-en-Provence where I grew up. I obtained an Economic and Social Baccalaureate with a sports-study course. (I joined the professional water polo team of Aix-en-Provence at the age of 17 ). I then did a first year of economics and management in the academy of Aix-Marseille. I didn’t like it and couldn’t reconcile the two, introduces Tom as a preamble.
Since this year, he has joined the INSEEC SPORT programs, in MSc 1 Sport Management.
” I have always been attracted to the operation of a club or the organization of events . I’m often impressed by the way sport can be a unifying force. This strength of being able to bring together people from different backgrounds and worlds.
Intrigued, I wanted to discover this professional environment and the actors who allow the implementation of sports competitions, as well as the life of sport in general.
The fact that I am continuing my Master’s degree in work-study at INSEEC also allows me to carry out my threefold project: to graduate with an MSc2, to be a high-level athlete, and finally to join a company to discover the professional world.”
Tom is delighted with the program, which allows him to be in direct contact with experienced speakers.
Club Development and Communications Officer
On a daily basis, as part of his work-study program, Tom can discover the development and communication aspects of his structure, the Aix-les-Bains swimming club.
” My missions are the search for partners and sponsors, the competitive intelligence, communication on social networks and website and finally the organization of various events. I’m also a player, so I have to practice twice a day when possible. I have to organize and manage my time to be able to do everything at once, says the one who wishes to become a professional player in the short and medium term.
” But if it doesn’t work out, I would like to integrate a sports structure on the communication part or a position of sports director in a club or an association. ”
This sports enthusiast has a lot of ideas!
Mature and professional, Tom puts everything on his side. Like a real fish in water.
