Bernard Garrette, New associate Dean for the HEC Paris MBA

10 January 2011

Professor Bernard Garrette is a HEC graduate, receiving his Masters from the Grande Ecole in 1985 and his Ph.D. in 1991. An internationally renowned researcher, he has published many scientific articles as well as publications aimed at practitioners. His research focuses primarily on strategic alliances between multinational companies and more recently on bottom of the pyramid strategies: business initiatives designed to incorporate poorer societies in the economic circuit.

Bernard Garrette has been a visiting professor at London Business School (in 1997 and 1999) and the University of Cambridge (1995-96) and he has worked as a consulting expert at McKinsey. At HEC Paris he is also chair-holder for the Atos Origin Chair on “Growth Strategies and Integration Management”.

Bernard Garrette takes over the MBA at a time when HEC Paris has recently succeeded in positioning itself among the best MBA programs in the world. According to Professor Garrette, “The top-tier position that the school has built in the global, hyper-competitive MBA market is a great achievement that creates obligations. The higher we climb the global MBA-ranking ladder, the greater the expectations we create from both students and recruiters.” The HEC Paris MBA is constantly evolving in order to enhance training as well as the personal experiences of participants living on campus. It is not just about living up to the expectations of students but, above all, fulfilling the demands and requirements of businesses.
