Why HEC Paris?

Before coming to HEC, I studied in Tsinghua University as an undergraduate, majoring in economics and finance. I also did an internship in the investment banking division of Citigroup in Hong Kong.

With a background in finance, I would also like to explore other business fields, and HEC’s Master in Management program offered me such an opportunity. Its highly internationalized community and leading position in management studies attracted me the most.

The program is composed of one year’s general management courses (M1), a gap year for doing internships or other professional projects (optional), and one year’s specialization studies (M2). In M1, I was exposed to various subjects, including supply chain management, marketing, contract law, etc. I was encouraged by peers and helped by the HEC career services to look for new professional interests, which led me to find an internship in data science for my gap year. Very different from what I did before!

HEC has a strong entrepreneurial culture. Like its mottos says, “the more you know, the more you dare”, I met lots of interesting people here who are dreamers and doers at the same time. It is a place full of possibilities.
