Learning methods & evaluations

Learning methods

Most courses in this program are delivered by alternating between lectures, case studies, exercises, simulations, applications, group work, and in-class presentations. Most courses require preparation before class: reading case studies or articles, answering preparatory questions, or solving a pre-class assignment. In the certificate project part, each participant chooses a tutor (supervisor) from the HEC Paris faculty to work on a certificate project. The project gives participants the opportunity to specialize in a particular area of strategic finance by applying what they have learned during the certificate on an original individual project. In this process they capitalize on the input and guidance of faculty and field experts from the world of finance who act as tutors.

Evaluations

Participants are evaluated along several dimensions: group writing or presentations on projects or case studies, quizzes, in-class or home exercises, multiple-choice quizzes, final exams, post-class analyzes and class participation. The weightings that instructors choose from all of these dimensions vary for each class.

Program

 

The program is comprised of a 10-day module with regular courses, courses, and the completion of a 2-day certificate project either in person or online. The certificate project gives participants the opportunity to apply the investing tools learned during the module on a challenging individual project. The project is done under the supervision of an experienced, world-class HEC faculty tutor.
