Executive Education

Shaping the future of business and society together

Mission & Values

Our mission

As an institution with a long and distinguished history, HEC Paris has an in-depth understanding of the impact of change. Our core mission is to shape the future of business and society through innovative and impactful lifelong learning and development initiatives.

Executive training is not only about economic results - it has a much broader social mission. Bringing together a global community of entrepreneurs, decision-makers, and change makers enables us to question current business practices and develop the skills, knowledge and courage needed to implement responsible and sustainable change.

HEC Executive Education mission

Cultivating diversity and open-mindedness

The rich professional and cultural diversity of all our participants and faculty has a major impact on our collaborative and inclusive learning approach, and is a constant source of inspiration.

The ability to adapt and open up our minds to new approaches is essential in our highly competitive economic environment.  At HEC Paris we actively embrace and encourage open-mindedness because it creates a unique climate that facilitates the implementation of change.


Developing proximity and a close-knit global community

We forge close and long-lasting relationships with our corporate clients and participants. Having an in-depth understanding of their specific needs and challenges allows us to co-develop the most appropriate and impactful learning journey.

Building strong networks to achieve your ambitions is also essential. At HEC Paris, we actively encourage proximity and sharing between peers to open up new horizons and opportunities.



Participants in our short programs can obtain an "HEC Paris Executive Education Certificate" by accumulating a minimum of 10 days of training and join the Executive Community network.
