On 28 September 2017, Sciences Po celebrated the 10th anniversary of the preparatory certificate for high performance athletes (CSHN).

In 2007, at the instigation of the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation, Sciences Po Executive Education began offering a training course for high performance athletes. It is a modular programme that enables athletes to prepare for their future careers. BNP Paribas and its private bank have supported the programme from the first, and have since been joined by the FDJ Corporate Foundation and, last autumn, the AccorHotels Group.


On 27 September 2017, a conference organised by Sciences Po was held at the French Embassy in Brussels.

The event focused on the following theme: “From Washington to Paris via the United Kingdom: the impact of recent global political upheaval on the European Union”.

Tell us a little about yourself: what are your aspirations and what was your path before Sciences Po?

I am half Zimbabwean, half Kenyan and I grew up in Zimbabwe. Prior to joining Sciences Po for my undergraduate programme, I completed my International Baccalaureat diploma at the United World College in Swaziland, a tiny kingdom in Southern Africa. In the long-term, my goal is to acquire the necessary skills that will allow me to be an effective leader, especially in this age of digitalisation, globalisation and climate change.
