Specialized in education and research in management, HEC Paris offers a complete and unique range of educational programs for the leaders of tomorrow: Masters Programs, MBA, PhD, Executive MBA, TRIUM Global Executive MBA and Executive Education open-enrolment and custom programs.
Founded in 1881 by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry and founding member of ParisTech and Université Paris-Saclay, HEC Paris has a permanent faculty of 106 professors, more than 4,000 students and over 8,500 managers and executives in training every year.
The Master in Management - Grande Ecole Program is designed for students who hold a Bachelor’s degree in any field. The 1st academic year is comprised of general business courses; the 2nd academic year is devoted to the student’s area of specialization.
The school selects students that show the highest potential and then guides them towards the top careers in management. The vocation of the Grande Ecole program is therefore to train its students to become leaders, capable of anticipating changes in the world and of playing a responsible role within it.
HEC successfully meets this exciting challenge by:
- systematically registering all of the knowledge transmitted at HEC at the forefront of research, in all fields of management science;
- being up to date with the on-the-field practices and expectations of the businesses that the school has maintained extremely close relations with since its creation and developing leadership and entrepreneurial skills amongst the students;
- giving all its students the opportunity to have a more international outlook from the beginning and throughout their school life, whether this is through exchanges or double degrees or even on the campus itself, where more than 95 nationalities are brought together.
The Specialized Masters and MSc provide students with a specialization in a sector or a function. Lasting 8 to 12 months and taught full-time, they are aimed at candidates, with little or no professional experience, who have graduated from higher education in France or abroad, and wish to acquire an expertise in a specific field of management.
6 programs are offered in English: MSc in International Finance (with one option in Real Estate conferring a double degree with the University of Wisconsin), MSc in Strategic Management, MSc in Managerial & Financial Economics, MSc in Marketing, MSc in Sustainable Development.
4 programs are offered in French: Specialized Masters in International Law and Management, Specialized Masters for Entrepreneurs, Specialized Masters in Projects Management, Specialized Masters in Media Arts and Creation.
One program, two options: 16-month full-time MBA and 24-month part-time MBA.
The HEC MBA is divided into 2 phases. During the fundamental phase participants gain a solid foundation in 11 core business subjects. In the customized phase participants tailor the MBA to suit their individual career paths in selecting from a range of business concentrations, corporate experience and international exchanges.
Participants gain hands-on, practical experience through seminars integrated into the curriculum, such as the MBA Tournament and the off-campus leadership seminar at St-Cyr Military Academy.
The program offers participants a unique and valuable experience of being immersed in a student body of highly diverse nationalities, academic and professional backgrounds. Teamed with exceptionally talented peers, participants motivate each other to achieve, to realize their full potential and ultimately develop and sharpen their leadership skills.
