The Student Seminar is an international four-day meeting and is a strong part of the EASM event calendar each year. It is hosted and organized by the local organizing committee of the EASM conference and typically takes place just prior to the conference.
“Over the course of 9 days, I had the opportunity to take part in the EASM Student Seminar and experience the Conference in Malmö, Sweden. More than 50 students from Universities across the world took part in this week’s long seminar, where the topic ‘How to manage sport in an ever-changing Europe’ was discussed. The 2018 EASM Student Seminar Management Game had the main focus on sport organisations and how they manage issues of children’s rights, integration and inclusion in and through sports.
Overall, this has been a very professional and successful event filled with amazing experiences and people who have made this Student Seminar and Conference an amazing experience in itself.” – Danique van der Straten (2018)
“The Student Seminar was a joyful time in many ways. I got friends and a network within the field I like and I got great opportunities to explore how diverse the Sport Management field is from people around the world. (…) You can get insights and a network for life that is hard to get in only a few days.” – Jakob Wikenstal (2017)
“I am happy to share my 9-day experience in the Student Seminar and Conference at EASM, the European Association for Sport Management. Over 50 students from universities across the world took part in the Student Seminar Conference 2018 in Malmö, Sweden. Within this seminar, students had to create a strategic plan of ‘How to manage sports in a changing Europe’ with the focus on inclusion and integration in relation to children’s rights. Together with my team, I created a sustainable CSR campaign for the AEK Football Club in Athens by establishing an integration and inclusion plan for children with a migrant background as well as local children. This campaign was presented at the official conference to professors and delegates from all over the world and was ranked 2nd place. As stated by the professors and delegates: ‘This was an extremely professional and successful event which all students praised the opportunity they had been given.'” – Fiona Clarius (2018)
“That week was amazing. Lots of learning, great places and most of all, lots of new friends. It was great meeting you all!” – Timo Ruuhijärvi (2018)
“What I value about EASM is that you get to know new people from all over the world with the same interests. I believe it is a real good thing to get to meet new people and enlargen your personal network across the existing geographical boundaries. For students, the seminar is great to achieve this.”
– Duncan Biesheuvel (2017)
“I thought that during the workshops of the EASM conference students were pretty well integrated. I was able to participate freely and could ask all of my questions.” – Emma Kayser (2017)
