Balancing studies and top-level sport


Study and sport at the same level, it's totally possible. You need to succeed in joining a school like EM Normandie Business School, which supports each of its students and their various projects.

Taking part in Jump EM: a unique opportunity

Today, I'm taking part in Jump EM, a competition organised by one of the EM Normandie associations on the beach at Ouistreham. I'm taking part for three days to represent EM Normandie and try to win the challenge for the best speed rider. 

I strongly advise all students to take up a sporting activity and, if possible, to follow their passion.

This gives them a guideline for their future choices and keeps them mentally strong throughout their studies.

The advantages offered by EM Normandie

EM Normandie Business School also allows me to make arrangements for timetables and absences during competitive exams.

This means that I can catch up on lessons by video and also benefit from a financial partnership to take part in all my exams and help me with my commitments and on the competition sites.

Ambitious goals with Emir

This year, I have ambitious goals with Emir, my lead horse. We're aiming to perform well in the 1.30m professional classes. At Jump EM, I'm here to enjoy the beach setting with Emir, take a bit of a holiday, reduce the number of events slightly and take part in the elite amateurs, which are the biggest events this weekend.

A professional future in the equestrian sector

I think that EM Normandie is really going to be able to help me go far in my career plan, which is linked to horse riding.

I'm more interested in event project management or communications for major equestrian brands, as well as anything to do with marketing strategies for event companies, equestrian structures or brands linked to riding.
