Our 340-acre wooded campus is located just 20km from the heart of Paris, as well as being in close vicinity to Paris’ most important business district La Defense and a mere 8 minute train journey from the historic Versailles.
With the campus’ close proximity to Paris, students will benefit from the richness and diversity of a city which is home to some of the most famous, breathtaking sights in the world.
Paris hosts a wealth of attractions, museums, restaurants and bars/cafés and was voted Best City for Students by QS Best Student Cities (2013, 2014, 2015).
Only 10 Km away, you can reach Versailles in just a short train journey. This charming city offers students a more tranquil, yet just as enriching, cultural experience. More than 4 million visitors come to Versailles every year to enjoy its outstanding hospitality, excellent accommodation, restaurants and attractive businesses, thus making Versailles one of the four most visited spots in France.
La Defense is the largest European Business District with the highest concentration of Multinational Company Headquarters in Europe. HEC Paris is proud to have developed strong relationships with these internationally-renowned companies, meaning that our students benefit directly from a host of career and internship opportunities.
