Between M1 and M2, students have the opportunity to take a gap year.
Choosing to take a gap year can make a real difference in your curriculum at HEC Paris.
Though optional, this experience is an opportunity to enrich your résumé with a solid professional experience. Discovering the reality of the business world in a specific field of your choice (marketing, finance, consultancy, communication…), you’ll be able to sharpen your career goals.
HEC Paris opens to various possibilities. You may choose to complete a one-year internship in a single company in order to get a solid professional experience in a function. But you also have the option of undertaking 2 6-month internships so you can discover different jobs and sectors.
This real life experience will also help you widen your perspective, and ensure that you are on the right path to achieve your objectives. You will then pursue your courses at HEC Paris with a more accurate vision and a renewed determination.
Not to mention that this gap year could be the perfect way to improve your French and to soak up even more of the French culture.
