Languages & Cultures

An international career requires the knowledge of two foreign languages. At HEC Paris, English and one other language are required for most students, who are also encouraged to learn a third language.

The Department offers classes in 11 different languages, provided by more than 40 language teachers: English, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Russian, Portuguese, Hebrew and French (FLE – French as a Foreign Language).

The Language Resource Center (LRC) provides incentives for individual work, in 24 languages.
