HEC Business Game (HBG) brings together hundred of students from all over the world and provides a platform for participating companies to meet talent, but also to get new business ideas around concrete issues.
The first edition of the HEC Business Game was held in 2014. Each year, the number of participants and members continues to grow, becoming a major event in the world of business schools. The event has grown considerably over the years, attracting more students each time and gaining international renown.
The association is part of the Alliance of European Business Games.
The team aims to provide participants with challenging case studies, exposure to international companies and opportunities to expand their professional and personal networks.
The HEC Business Game team partners with companies that organize challenges for the participants. During the challenge, students are exposed to innovative ideas and have the opportunity to meet with company representatives, as well as students from other business schools.
The HEC Business Game values:

Over two days in April, different groups of students form to take part in two challenges per day, before pitching their ideas. The competition creates the ideal opportunity for networking with employees from influential firms such as Bain & Co.
