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, we have designed a 6-step career roadmap, which aims at helping our students explore their options, understand the job market and their personal priorities, and give them all the tools to achieve their goals.

On top of that, we also provide our students with up-to-date job & internship opportunities and organize many events throughout the year: company presentations, seminars, conferences, round tables, mock interviews with recruiters, career fairs...

6 key services are provided:

  • Career advice
  • Networking with Alumni
  • Company events
  • Career workshops
  • Internship and job offers
  • Handling of compulsory work experience requirements.

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

Entrepreneurship at HEC Paris

HEC offers a vibrant environment for would-be and young entrepreneurs, including weekly events and talks, world-class challenges, a dedicated entrepreneurial lab on campus and co-working spaces in Paris. Many students develop exciting ideas for new businesses before, during and after their time at HEC Paris.

The HEC Incubator helps participants manage the start-up risks that setting up a new firm might entail, so that they can pursue their ambitions with greater ambition.

The Incubator program involves workshops and active mentoring from the Faculty and Alumni, and includes a Social Entrepreneurship Track. It is supported by a three-step pre-incubation phase: throughout the ‘Introducing Entrepreneurship’, ‘Sandbox’ and ‘Springboard’ steps, participants can gather constructive feedbacks on their ideas before deciding whether to submit them for full Incubator selection.

Seventeen Chairs and Centers

Strongly backed by leading firms, the seventeen chairs and centers ensure that the content of our courses are both in line with the latest research and the needs of today’s recruiters.

Pursuing higher studies after a one-year program (MS/MSc)

The Bologna Process aims at facilitating comparisons and compatibility between higher education systems in Europe. HEC Paris’ MS and MSc programs have a one-year duration and account for 75 ECTS credits (MS) or 90 ECTS credits (MSc). They provide strategic, technical and operational skills to students who want to kick-start their career. Students willing to pursue higher studies after these programs should verify the ECTS requirements: it is not guaranteed that one-year / less than 120 ECTS credits programs will be recognized for such purposes.
