Specialized in education and research in management, HEC Paris offers a complete and unique range of educational programs for the leaders of tomorrow: Masters Programs, MBA, PhD, Executive MBA, TRIUM Global Executive MBA and Executive Education open-enrolment and custom programs.
Founded in 1881 by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry and founding member of ParisTech and Université Paris-Saclay, HEC Paris has a permanent faculty of 106 professors, more than 4,000 students and over 8,500 managers and executives in training every year.
The Master in Management - Grande Ecole Program is designed for students who hold a Bachelor’s degree in any field. The 1st academic year is comprised of general business courses; the 2nd academic year is devoted to the student’s area of specialization.
The school selects students that show the highest potential and then guides them towards the top careers in management. The vocation of the Grande Ecole program is therefore to train its students to become leaders, capable of anticipating changes in the world and of playing a responsible role within it.
HEC successfully meets this exciting challenge by:
- systematically registering all of the knowledge transmitted at HEC at the forefront of research, in all fields of management science;
- being up to date with the on-the-field practices and expectations of the businesses that the school has maintained extremely close relations with since its creation and developing leadership and entrepreneurial skills amongst the students;
- giving all its students the opportunity to have a more international outlook from the beginning and throughout their school life, whether this is through exchanges or double degrees or even on the campus itself, where more than 95 nationalities are brought together.
The Specialized Masters and MSc provide students with a specialization in a sector or a function. Lasting 8 to 12 months and taught full-time, they are aimed at candidates, with little or no professional experience, who have graduated from higher education in France or abroad, and wish to acquire an expertise in a specific field of management.
6 programs are offered in English: MSc in International Finance (with one option in Real Estate conferring a double degree with the University of Wisconsin), MSc in Strategic Management, MSc in International Business, MSc in Managerial & Financial Economics, MSc in Marketing, MSc in Sustainable Development.
4 programs are offered in French: Specialized Masters in International Law and Management, Specialized Masters for Entrepreneurs, Specialized Masters in Projects Management, Specialized Masters in Media Arts and Creation.
One program, two options: 16-month full-time MBA and 24-month part-time MBA.
The HEC MBA is divided into 2 phases. During the fundamental phase participants gain a solid foundation in 11 core business subjects. In the customized phase participants tailor the MBA to suit their individual career paths in selecting from a range of business concentrations, corporate experience and international exchanges.
Participants gain hands-on, practical experience through seminars integrated into the curriculum, such as the MBA Tournament and the off-campus leadership seminar at St-Cyr Military Academy.
The program offers participants a unique and valuable experience of being immersed in a student body of highly diverse nationalities, academic and professional backgrounds. Teamed with exceptionally talented peers, participants motivate each other to achieve, to realize their full potential and ultimately develop and sharpen their leadership skills.
A unique program: 8 majors • 5 locations • 1 single diploma

Emergence has received relatively limited direct research attention in the micro and meso disciplines of organizational science (i.e., organizational psychology, organizational behavior, and human resource management). It has largely been treated as latent and assumed, assessed within a limited conceptualization, and examined in a static fashion. This is part of a broader problem in organizational psychology and behavior research (OP/B) that treats team (and other) processes as static constructs. I will discuss emergence as a multilevel process and focus on its point of origin, interaction patterns, and the dynamics of how phenomena emerge. I will discuss how emergent phenomena are typically studied in organizational science and the limitations inherent in the dominant approaches. Once emerged, team processes also exhibit dynamics with respect to the stability of the emerged phenomenon, the form of emergence, and variability in its level. Given these conceptual complexities, investigating emergence is challenging and necessitates new methodologies. I will discuss innovations in research design and measurement that are required to advance understanding of emergence as a process and team processes as dynamic phenomena. I will present some novel approaches and will illustrate them by highlighting my current research.

We develop an equilibrium model of price dynamics and the transmission of shocks in a supply chain and determine the equilibrium price process for the input, the output, and the spread between input and output prices. We then present a set of stylized facts about crack spreads and calibrate our model for the case of crude oil and refined products. As we show, the relative volatility of oil and gasoline, as well as their correlation depends on the volatility and correlations of supply and demand shocks, elasticities, the convexity of the production function, and the competitiveness of the refinery market. Our research has implications for understanding the volatility of energy markets, investment incentives and optimal regulation of supply chains, and optimal risk management policies.

The last two decades have witnessed a call for corporate governance reform spanning not only continents, but also a diverse array of stakeholder groups. This research explores the ongoing social movement behind governance reform in the U.S. and the interactions of institutions central to that initiative. In a departure from extant study of social movements, we find a shared frame is unrelated to collective mobilization among key institutional actors. Their failure to coalesce produces a unique form of uncertainty – one borne of homo- (rather than hetero-) geneous logic. We further explore the response of firms to these developments. Our findings suggest the political economy of U.S. corporate directorships has been upended. The new director elite bears little resemblance to its forebearers, even profiles as recent as the year 2000. Implications for research and practice, including governance effectiveness, are discussed.

The Right Metric for the Right Decision, Manager, Firm, and Industry: Correcting for Endogenous Selection Effects
Coauthors Ofer Mintz, Timothy Gilbride, and Imran Currim
While there has been much progress in research on metrics to improve marketing’s accountability, currently little or no research has linked the effectiveness of a metric to its use and the outcome of an individual marketing mix decision. This study measures metric effectiveness and metric use in the context of the marketing mix decision and managerial, firm, and industry characteristics. Our econometric model adjusted for potential endogeneity bais in the measurement of metric effectiveness due to selection effects since managers do not randomly select metrics for different marketing mix decisions. Our hierarchical Bayes model includes a regression model that relates the overall performance of the marketing mix decision to latent, post hoc metric effectiveness and a correlated, multivariate probit model for metric use. The likelihood of metric use depends on the managers’ ex ante beliefs about metric effectiveness. The main findings show (i) there is no “silver” metric that is always beneficial to employ, though Willingness to Recommend and Awareness come close, (ii) type of marketing mix is the most important driver of metric effectiveness, but managerial, firm, and industry characteristics matter, and (iii) managers over-employ financial metrics and under-employ marketing metrics relative to their perceived effectiveness. The implications of this work generate several theoretical, methodological, and managerial contributions.
