Our main recruiting Fairs
Our major recruiting fairs take several different forms. There are events dedicated to key sectors (Consulting, Finance, Tech & Digital, Legal), as well as specific student profiles, such as the MBA Career Week or the annual school-wide HEC Carrefours Career Fair, which is organized by the students themselves. These are unmissable events for our students, participants, and recent graduates: come and meet your future talent!
Our recruiting fairs are ideal platforms for boosting your reputation and visibility among students. You can build a lasting foothold on the campus thanks to these privileged interactions that are repeated from one year to the next. Every meeting is an opportunity for our students to engage directly with your staff and enhance their understanding of your company, its culture, and its different lines of work, challenges and expectations. They provide the optimal conditions for recruiting top international talent for your business activities around the world, all in one single venue at a set time.
MBA Career Week
September 2nd to 6th 2019
The MBA Career Week kicks off the recruitment season in early September, offering you the chance to meet with about 300 MBA each year.
You can schedule a 90-minute session with students, which gives you enough time for a company presentation, a question-and-answer session, and more informal networking over a coffee or cocktail. The CVs of all the MBA are provided in advance.
International Finance Fair
1st October 2019
Held in early October, this unique event is dedicated to finance, introducing our students to prestigious financial institutions, with a strong international dimension.
Over the course of a full day, you will have the opportunity to engage with all of our students, not just from the Grande École but also our MBA, Specialized Masters and MSc students.
To prepare for the event, our students take advantage of campus visits made by alumni working in finance. At the Alumni Finance Networking event, alumni talk to students about their backgrounds and the challenges specific to their chosen finance professions in an informal setting.

In addition, an MBA digital specialization was recently created in response to the fact that nearly 25% of our MBA students are recruited into this sector.
HEC Carrefours Career Fair
23 and 24 January 2019
For multinationals and startups alike, if you offer internships and employment opportuniites, the HEC Carrefours Career Fair is our biggest, most general recruitment fair held during the academic year. The eponymous student association, HEC Carrefours, organizes the meeting over two full days on an annual basis.
For companies with stands, there is a prestigious lunch, to which company representatives can invite students whom they have singled out. For startups, there is a special lunch with students from the association.
To help students prepare properly for this important event, the annual forum of the HEC Alumni association, organized jointly with the team from the campus Career Center, takes place one week before the Carrefours. Meetings with alumni; workshops and seminars on optimizing CVs and LinkedIn profiles; training for job interviews; conferences for sharing information about international labor markets; and more are all on the agenda.
