The Russian International Olympic University (RIOU) keeps its network of international partners growing as two leading French universities, Groupe INSEEC and Université
Paris-Sud join educational institutions from Britain, Austria, Canada, Finland and Spain as RIOU partners.
RIOU’s partnership with Groupe INSEEC will include exchange programs offering students at both educational institutions an opportunity to secure a dual RIOU-INSEEC diploma in sports management. The link with Université Paris-Sud takes the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for international cooperation which will see both parties collaborate on a range of projects, including summer schools.
“We are delighted to have established partnerships with Groupe INSEEC and Université Paris-Sud– two hugely respected French educational establishments. These partnerships enhance our network of international partners and create additional exciting opportunities for our students and faculty members,” said RIOU Rector Professor Lev Belousov. “The demand for RIOU to engage in student exchange programs reinforces the increasingly high regard in which RIOU is held by the sports industry and we hope to be organizing student exchange programs with our French friends next year.”
