General and specialized MBAs both have distinct advantages. Which one prospective students choose will come down to their planned career path
Andrea Masini, Associate Dean of HEC Paris' MBA, warns prospective students that specialization should not be achieved at the expense of the traditional pillars of a general MBA, such as leadership skills, or the ability to work effectively in multicultural environments.
Without in-depth general management skills, he says niche MBA programs “may be less effective in facilitating career transformation. After all, businesses still need general managers”.
How to Pay for a Master in Management or Other Business Master’s Degrees
HEC Paris offers a range of scholarships that consist of tuition fee waivers and are awarded based on merit, or the academic performance of students. These include the Eiffel Excellence scholarship, and the Volkswagen - HEC Women in Finance scholarship.
On top of the merit-based scholarships, there are several external scholarships that students can use to study at HEC Paris and are awarded based on the student’s country of origin. For instance, the Chilean government offers students money to cover travel expenses, books and other study material.
In addition to all this, HEC Paris provides students with on-campus jobs, for instance within the student-led consulting firm “Junior Enterprise”. Students work for French and international companies on various projects (such as the positioning of a new product or market data analysis) and get paid for their time.

But during the customizable part of the MBA, where experience is often more relevant, up to 40% can be taught by external collaborators. Examples include advanced finance classes taught by senior bankers and an ethics seminar delivered by a monk.
