HEC Paris, together with its outstanding professors and talented students, gifted me with an incredible experience that made me grow both academically and personally

I was lucky enough to take part in both Fashion and Luxury Management Summer School Programs. The professors’ knowledge and passion for teaching made me enjoy four intense weeks. The participation of additional leading experts made the whole learning environment more engaging and inspiring.

The month spent at the HEC Paris Summer School enlightened me with ideas for my future and made me fall in love with the institution of HEC Paris. After this short but satisfying immersion, I am certainly going to apply for a Masters at HEC Paris. The whole campus setup contributes to creating the perfect environment for hard work and strong ties with peers.

The presence of so many nationalities and backgrounds provided an opportunity to explore different ways of thinking. Every 2-week Summer School Program had a project to be prepared in assigned groups for the end of the course. It was a great chance to learn how to collaborate and manage diverse approaches to team work and group organization.

In Fashion Management, we worked with a renowned premium brand, Lacoste. After having learned a lot about its roots and past collaborations, it was both enjoyable and challenging working on a new strategy for them. For Luxury Management our guest company was Annick Goutal, a niche perfume luxury brand. With them I learned a lot about the niche industry, which has its unique approach and strategy.

Overall, I could not be more confident in recommending this Summer School Program at HEC Paris. If I had to summarize my impression in a few words, I would say: HEC Paris, together with its outstanding professors and talented students, gifted me with an incredible experience that made me grow both academically and personally.
