Advance your career in general management by expanding your functional and industry expertise

The career development of executives in general management positions typically reflects their individual leadership skills, their mastery of several areas of business, and their ability to align their understanding and management of several organizational functions.

The HEC Paris Accelerated General Management Program is aimed at managers wishing to broaden their functional and industry knowledge, in order to achieve business excellence in both their careers and in their organizations. It offers a unique learning experience in the global landscape of executive general management programs.

The program is fully customizable enabling participants to tailor their own learning path. You can combine two specializations to fast-track the development of the necessary analytical and cross-functional skills to excel across domains, industries, and borders.

The program provides a unique multilingual and multi-location learning experience, by offering the choice of 2 specializations run in English or French.

Participants can combine one 12-day course in English, with one 15 to 20 day course in French or two 15 to 20 day courses in French.
