HEC Difference HEC Difference

Founded in 1881, HEC Paris has a long history of creating the leaders of tomorrow. At HEC Paris, you will learn as much from your peers as your professors and join our inspiring community of more than 70,000 alumni across 150 countries. 

The HEC Difference

At the HEC Paris EMBA, we build leaders with the character, competence, and courage to change the world. What starts at HEC Paris shapes the future. We realize this through:


World-class professors

At HEC Paris, our faculty push the frontiers of knowledge to generate new ideas that will shape tomorrow’s world and have a lasting impact on society. Throughout your EMBA experience, you will have privileged access to thought leadership and be able to discuss, debate, and brainstorm these cutting-edge ideas with your peers and professors in a stimulating and personalized environment.


Rigorous Academic Theory Combined with Experiences


Our purposeful curriculum offers a core that is timeless coupled with timely customized options

  • ESG is transversal and embedded throughout curriculum.  
  • All EMBAs may tailor the program with their choice of dedicated themes. These Specializations deliver hands-on experience in today’s most in-demand sectors and they also open doors to new career opportunities.
  • Students work on a Capstone Project, a challenging individual project that enables you to apply everything you have learned in the program. 
  • Students take part in the annual Outdoor Leadership Seminar, where you will improve your leadership skills through a series of increasingly difficult tasked supervised by leadership experts. 

A Unique Approach to Leadership

We are committed to shaping responsible leaders and our graduates are empowered with the ability to inspire, influence, and improve performance in the workplace.  

We build leaders who are proud to create impact within their organizations, while contributing to the greater good of society and an understanding that their obligations go beyond the bottom line.  

Our holistic evidence-based approach to leadership development helps our students develop the knowledge, skills, and courage to drive real change in their lives and careers.

The design of our leadership curriculum is built on a “head, hands, and heart” framework. This approach emphasizes knowledge acquisition, skill development and providing students space to find their own unique leadership purpose.  

No matter what discipline our students decide to concentrate on, they will leave HEC with the know-how and confidence to boldly impact the world.


Flexible Formats 

The HEC Paris EMBA offers two different study formats and four flexible, part-time intakes throughout the year, giving your options to choose the one that best first with your personal and professional lifestyle. Programs are held in Paris, Jouy-en-Josas (17 kilometers outside of Paris), Doha, and Riyadh.

In addition, our Specializations, which are held over two separate weeks, are held in two locations, allowing you have more cultural exchanges, networking opportunities, and international experiences.


Outstanding Participants & Influential Global Network 

With over 50 nationalities represented, the highly diverse professional and cultural backgrounds of our participants mean that you learn just as much from your classmates as from our top professors.

Upon graduations, you join the more that 70,000 alumni living in 150 countries across the globe, who will provide you with business opportunities and unlimited possibilities to exchange with like-minded peers worldwide.
