Academic Team


In today's business environment, continual and rapid change is the norm. Globalization, financial instabilities, the evolution of digital business models, and the rise of new markets all contribute to significant uncertainties for established organizations. To navigate this terrain effectively, firms must be agile, embrace technological advancements, and embark on strategic endeavors such as mergers, acquisitions, and alliances.

These challenges underscore an increasing demand for strategic skills across various sectors:  

  • Multinational corporations must continuously refine their strategies and adapt their day-to-day operations.
  • Strategic consultancy firms must consistently demonstrate the value they deliver to their clients.
  • Investment banks and corporate venture capital entities must actively shape new partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions.

Consequently, the current market requires the highest standard of technical training. The HEC MSc in Strategic Management meets this demand. This intensive 10-month program, conducted entirely in English, combines the teachings from world class HEC faculty with exposure to managers from top-tier international consulting firms and leading corporations. These corporate partners actively contribute to the curriculum through immersive business cases and a multitude of real-world company projects.  

Participants from diverse global backgrounds stand to gain immensely from the program's extensive international exposure, deep engagement with corporate partners, and the reputation of HEC Paris as a leading European business school.  

We look forward to welcoming you on campus.
