Creating a Chair

Signature Chaire Digital Innovation for Business - HEC Paris

Develop a long-term relationship with HEC Paris: When signing a chair for a 5-year period, your company and HEC will jointly develop expertise on a topic of choice. The chair can be dedicated to research and/or teaching.

Creating a Chair can result in the design of a Certificate, a 100-hour module to which your company’s name is closely associated. It can also result in the sponsorship of a specialization. The company is fully involved in defining and teaching the program.

Creating a research Chair means benefiting from the excellence of a Senior Professor in his or her field of expertise and providing the context and means for them to carry out their work: publications in prestigious reviews, communications in seminars and congresses, pedagogical projects, etc

Any company which creates a chair is automatically granted membership of the HEC Foundation.

The endowment of the company comes to €250,000 per year over a renewable 5 year period. For permanent chairs, the company makes a single capital endowment of €1,525,000.

Creating or assigning a scholarship fund for students

Elèves boursiers HEC Paris

You will thereby contribute to HEC Paris’ social responsibility policy:

  • needs-based scholarships aimed at promoting equal opportunities: 20% of Master in Management Grande Ecole students are granted full or partial needs-based scholarships
  • recruitment of foreign students: several companies or individuals have decided to grant scholarships to students coming from geographical areas they bear special interest to and whose academic background they also find interesting. The scholarship is then named and advertised after the donor’s name.
  • PhD scholarships: company sponsors thus support HEC's financial aid policy
