Nicolas NALPAS Fund
The Nicolas NALPAS Fund
Professor of Finance at TBS Education from 2004-2015, the Nicolas NALPAS fund was set up on the initiative of Nicolas’ colleagues, students, former graduates, family and friends, after his untimely death on 19th January 2015 following a tragic diving accident.
Created in honour of his memory, the Fund will be used to pursue the projects Nicolas had started with his students, and defend the values that he held dear: helping others, striving for excellence and pushing oneself to go the extra mile.
