  • Degree certificate(s) or current enrollment certificate
  • All official academic transcripts obtained in a higher education institution (exchange programs included) with official GPA

  • 2 completed online reference forms (at least one should be filled out by a professor)
  • Passport-style photo
  • Non-refundable application fee of €125.

 

Candidates are only allowed to apply to one track within a parent program. This means that a first choice MIF application cannot have a MIF track as a second choice.

Each applicant must choose either Accelerated Track or Business Track, keeping in mind that the ideal candidate profile for each track is different. Please see “THE PROFILE WE VALUE” if you are unsure which track to choose.

Each applicant must then choose either Capital Markets or Corporate Finance as a specialization. If you are unsure which specialization to choose, please see our “COURSE PORTFOLIO” section.

See examples below that demonstrate these rules:

*Students from Tsinghua University who wish to participate in our MIF double-degree program must apply in Round 2.

Apply to five French business schools through Join a School in France.  Join a School in France is a platform enabling international students with a non-French Bachelor's degree to apply for the Master's in Management program at five prestigious French business schools via a single application.

Graduates who hold a minimum three-year degree diploma (Bachelor’s, Licence, Benke, etc.) awarded by a nationally accredited higher education institution outside of France can apply directly through Join a School in France.  

The deadlines for the 4 application sessions via Join a School in France are as follows:

Round 1: October 10th, 2023, at midnight Paris time
Round 2: January 3rd, 2024, at midnight Paris time
Round 3: March 1st, 2024, at midnight Paris time
Round 4: April 17th, 2024, at midnight Paris time  

You select your top choice if admitted to more than one school.  

The application fee is 220 euros.  

Students must choose one option only, i.e. if you apply directly to HEC, you cannot apply through Join a School in France (ex SAI), and vice versa. Both methods are treated equally and fairly.  

If an application is submitted both through Join a School in France and through HEC directly, only the first validated application shall be processed for the September 2024 intake.  

Visit the Join a School in France website for more information."
