MSc Data Science for Business: Joint Degree with Ecole Polytechnique Careers

As “Big Data” affects all kinds of companies and all sectors, students will have a very large range of career options upon graduation, from consulting firms to digital start-ups, not to mention very large multi-national companies.

In fact, as can be seen in all areas of cutting-edge innovation, there is a growing demand for high-level managers who can combine strong technical skill with business know-how.

This is especially true when it comes to Data Science topics, and students graduating from data science and Big Data programs are therefore highly sought after on the job market.

HEC Paris' close ties with the business world

The Career Department


Located at the heart of the school, the career department strives to help students build their career plan and to provide the best possible internship and job opportunities.

To do so, it has designed an exhaustive process, which aims at helping the students explore their options, understand the job market and their personal priorities, and give them all the tools to achieve their goals.

The Career Department at HEC Paris also provides the students with up-to-date job & internship opportunities, and organizes many events throughout the year: company presentations, seminars, conferences, round tables, mock interviews with recruiters, career fairs...

Finally, it connects students with inspiring alumni, not only through a dedicated Alumni Fair in January, but also within the frame of a mentoring program.
