At HEC Paris, we commit to offering visiting students the conditions under which they can do research at the highest academic level. They are integrated into an academic department and accompanied by one of our research faculty. They are encouraged to participate in research seminars and academic workshops organized by their host department. They can take any course offered by the HEC Paris PhD program. Visiting students benefit from all offered research seminars and have access to our Learning Center and IT resources, an office space, an HEC email address, and they benefit from all student services available on campus (excluding Career Services and HEC Alumni) such as Sport Activities, Medical Center, Student Associations, etc.
