HEC Consulting Club
HEC Junior Conseil is the junior enterprise of HEC Paris, an association which is both involved with campus life and an employer just the same. Every year a campaign elects a new team in November, and offers high-quality studies in a range of expertise such as audit, marketing, entrepreneurship. The association employs more than 300 students as task officers each year, as well as offering services to prestigious clients such as google, Bain and Microsoft.
- Junior Conseil offers its expertise in marketing, strategy, finance, communication and enterprise start-ups. Student members receive training from the society’s partners (BCG, KMPG and Oliver Wyman) in areas such as business plans, client relationships, market studies, and presentations. This training prepares them for the projects they will undertake as members of Junior Conseil, and in their future professional endeavours.
- After training, members make up part of one of two mandates each year, between November and June. There are typically 20-21 people for each mandate and both work together, building on the training they received in the first year.
- The second mission of Junior Conseil is providing students on campus with a source of remunerated work, which allows them to put into practice the skills they have learned throughout the year. For example, they are encouraged to make business plans, benchmarks, and start-ups, putting to use the skills they have gained from class.
- The society brings a lot of life to the HEC campus with a range of professional events, POWs, and organised dinners with former Junior Conseil members.
- The Junior Conseil campaign is an event that occurs every year, where students apply to become one of the administrators of the society. The elections take place at the end of November, after a series of professional trials including tasks such as event organisation.
- Breakfasts at the “batzet” and two big POWs each year are organised on campus.
- The association takes part in the Weekend of Integration (WEI) and the ‘Acceuil Admissible’ every year.
- Every year the society organises a dinner, inviting former Junior Conseil members and current members, this provides the opportunity for alumni to reunite and reminisce and creates an ideal opportunity for current students to learn from the experienced.
- Junior Conseil also has their own award, the Junior Enterprise Award, which is awarded to one of the many humanitarian societies at HEC to help them in their projects. In 2017, the society had €5000 to award so decided to divide the money between three humanitarian societies.
