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, HEC 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, HEC Paris has a permanent faculty of 115 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.
Six programs are offered in English: MSc in International Finance (with one option in Real Estate conferring a double degree with the University of Wisconsin), Masters in Strategic Management, MSc in International Business, MSc in Managerial & Financial Economics, MSc in Marketing, MSc in Sustainable Development.

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.

This investigation explores how power and stability within a social hierarchy interact to affect risk-taking. Building on a diverse, interdisciplinary body of research, including work on non-human primates, intergroup status, and childhood social hierarchies, we predicted that the unstable powerful and the stable powerless will be more risk taking than the stable powerful and unstable powerless. Across four studies, the unstable powerful and the stable powerless preferred probabilistic over certain outcomes and engaged in more risky behaviors in an organizational decision-making scenario, a blackjack game, and a balloon-pumping task than did the the stable powerful and the unstable powerless. These effects appeared to be the result of the increased stress that accompanied states of unstable power and stable powerlessness: these states produced more physiological arousal, a direct manipulation of stress led to greater risk taking, and stress tolerance moderated the interaction between power and stability on risk taking. These results have important implications for the way social scientists conceptualize the psychology of power and offer a theoretical framework for understanding factors that lead to risk taking in organizations. Current and future directions on power, stress, and risk-taking will also be discussed.

A retailer’s assortment is the set of products they carry in each store at each point in time. Obviously the assortment a retailer chooses to carry has an enormous impact on their revenue, profitability and customer satisfaction. I describe joint work with Ramnath Vaidyanathan, a PhD student in Operations and Information Management at Wharton, now in the business school at McGill. We consider the problem of choosing, from a set of N potential SKUs in a retail category, K SKUs to be carried at each store of a retail chain so as to maximize revenue or profit. Assortments can vary by store, subject to a maximum number of different assortments. We describe an approach in which we view a SKU as a set of attribute values, use sales history of the SKUs currently carried by the retailer to estimate the demand for attribute values and from this, the demand for any potential SKU, including those not currently carried by the retailer. We also introduce a model of substitution behavior, estimate the parameters of this model and consider the impact of substitution in choosing assortments. We use maximum likelihood estimation to fit the parameters of our model and describe several alternative heuristics for choosing SKUs. We describe application of this approach to optimize assortments for three real examples, snack foods, tires, and appearance chemicals. The tire and appearance chemicals recommendations were implemented and produced revenue increases of 5.8% and 3.5% respectively, increases which are significant relative to typical comparable store increases in these segments.
