Academic Team

Today’s business environment experiences constant and rapid change. Globalization, financial crises, the development of digital business models and emerging markets are causing drastic uncertainty among well established organizations. Firms need to be efficient in their response, embracing technological change and undertaking strategic action such as mergers, acquisitions and alliances.

These challenges signify a growing demand for strategic skills:

  • Multinational firms must refine their strategies, and continuously change their day-to-day practices.
  • Strategic Consultancy firms must constantly demonstrate the added value they provide to their clients.
  • Investment banks and corporate venture capital must shape new alliances, mergers and acquisitions.

As a result, the market today requires the highest standard of technical training; the HEC MSc Strategic Management meets this demand. Taught entirely in English, the program lasts 10 months and is actively supported by top international consulting firms, leading companies and investment banks which energetically take part in its curriculum through business cases and numerous real-life company projects.

Participants from all around the world will benefit from the program’s international exposure, the involvement of corporate partners and the reputation of HEC Paris as a leading business school in Europe.

We look forward to welcoming you on campus.
