Part of The Alliance of European Business Games, the HEC Business Game brings together over 150 students from across the world to take part in an annual real-life case competition set by partner firms. 

Our goals

  • The HEC Business Game is sponsored by companies who give participants two days to solve four real-life cases. Students often bring fresh new ideas to the table and get to network with experienced professionals. 
  • The HEC Business Game values:
    • Diversity
    • Innovation
    • Excellence
    • Entrepreneurship
    • Skill Development

Key Events

  • 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.
  • The Heads of each department meet regularly to discuss the organization of the Business Game and then return to their individual teams to get to work.
  • Team building events, such as dinners and drinks in Paris, help the society members get to know one another and learn to work together, creating a friendly and fun atmosphere.
