HEC Paris Masters students anticipate their upcoming graduation

We all have momentous and unforgettable moments in our lives and graduation day is definitely one of them. It is a time of bittersweet and mixed emotions. A time to reflect on what you have learned, what you have achieved, how you have grown as a person and the strong bonds and lifelong friendships you have made along the way.

GE Masters - Graduation 2023

Graduation day is the culmination of all the time, energy, and work that you have put into gaining your degree and a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate everything that you have accomplished with your family and loved ones. A defining moment to remember for years to come.

Graduating is not only the end of an enriching human experience, but the beginning of a new and exciting journey. It is a turning point and a time to think ahead and look to the future. That is why we prefer to call it a Commencement Ceremony at HEC Paris.

With our graduation ceremony on 9th June rapidly approaching, we asked some of our Masters graduates to share their thoughts about their experience at HEC Paris and their feelings and emotions about graduating.

HEC Paris will forever be a place I'll call home, and I am profoundly happy to have lived the best 11 months of my life in this esteemed institution. Thank you, HEC Paris, for an unforgettable and truly fulfilling experience."
