The M1 year gives you a chance to shape your career prospects further and find exciting internships in preparation for your future profession.

Master in Management, Class of 2017

The M1 year consists of: 

•    compulsory courses in management (48 credits)
•    a wide range of electives (12 credits)

Between the first and the second semester, students attend academies.

Students have the option to waive certain courses, provided they can prove they have sufficient knowledge in the area. You can apply to waive up to 8 courses and 21 credits, in order to benefit from a wide range of advanced courses and electives. The waiver scheme is conducted in a wishlist format, in which the student states the courses he/she wishes to waive, in order of preference.

Students have many opportunities to work with companies on real-life consultancy projects and ‘live cases’, for instance with EDF, L’Oréal Paris, Procter & Gamble, PwC, Roland Berger, TBWA, etc.

As an international business school, HEC Paris welcomes students from all over the world. Almost one hundred nationalities live on the campus. It's a fantastic opportunity to discover other cultures and to share exceptional moments, and it's important that students can communicate as much as they wish.

HEC Paris Learning Center of Languages aims at helping students to learn or strengthen any language they would like, providing a wide range of I.T. and print resources.

MiM students do not need to speak French to enroll in the program as all core courses and most electives are offered in English. However, some knowledge of French can be useful to enjoy the full HEC experience, become professionally bicultural and optimize networking with French students and alumni. This is why HEC Paris offers French language classes free of charge to its international students, including an Intensive French Language & Culture Academy in January. 

Students may also register for the HEC Paris French School (TEF certificate – all levels) in August. This is an exceptional opportunity to learn French and to live in the very heart of Paris before joining the campus.

Students are supported in their professional project with a 6-step career roadmap with efficient tools and resources:

  • workshops
  • one-on-one coaching sessions
  • career events
  • mock interviews
