Benjamin Didier Banlock, former Secretary General of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT ) has dedicated a recently obtained Executive Masters Degree in Business administration to football stakeholders in the country.
Banlock became a holder of the Executive MBA this Monday, after he successfully defended a thesis focused on strategic management of football organizations, at the Catholic University of Central Africa.
The academic defense supervised by Professor Patrick Provenzano focused on Cameroonian clubs. Banlock earned a standing ovation for his research work supervised by Dr Pierre Yves Ndzomo.
The research which partially funded by the Cameroon football Federation in April 2021 through the FIFA forward 2.0 funds had key recommendations which he highlighted to the media after the defense.
“The main recommendations I have made in this dissertation is that the mindset of the governing body needs to change. Our professional football needs to be adjusted and that public policy in terms of sports organisation needs to be re-organized.”
“It is worth noting that I have had the privilege of occupying top roles in the management of Cameroonian football which has an impact and influence on a continental scale,” Banlock said.
He further expressed his appreciation towards those that have accompanied him through the process;
“On this note, I would like to thank my family and friends who have always been by my side during this academic process. The members of the jury Dr. Evele Malik Atour, Mr. Enow Ngachu and Mr. Jean Roger Abanda. The management of the Department, my classmates from the “J. Rawlings” year, and presidents of football clubs and officials in Cameroon, who opened their doors to me.”
“I would also like to express my sincere thanks to the Cameroon Football Federation, which, in April 2021, contributed to the partial funding of this very high-level training programme through the FIFA Forward 2.0 programme. I equally appreciate the members of the football family at national and international level,” he concluded.
Benjamin Banlock has been singled out for praises by many who collaborated with him during his days as SG of FECAFOOT before his resignation just about a year ago.
