Outstanding MBA in Sports Management: Podoactiva Field Visit
The students of the International MBA in Sports Management benefited from the ESEI Business School-sponsored field visit to the facilities of Podoactiva in Barcelona and they were in for a surprise.
Under the guidance of their professor Frank Hendrickx they were introduced to the high-precision technology applied by the company. They learned about the biomechanical study of the footprint, important to know and prevent possible pathologies and injuries of the foot and other parts of the human body.
To make things even more amusing one of the students volunteered to do a real test, so the group could experience first-hand how the medical staff of Podoactiva performs a complete gait analysis on their patients, which include elite football players of several Spanish and international teams as well as athletes of other sports disciplines.
The students will develop in class a case study related to Podoactiva and injury prevention in different sports disciplines around the globe.
