Executive leadership development is a vital component of the Executive MBA curriculum. At HEC Paris, we build your leadership and soft skills to motivate, empower and inspire your teams. Leadership training requires a rigorous combination of academic theory and learning by doing. Students are given the opportunity to put these theories to the test. 

Participants refine leadership skills during the development of the Capstone Project, which requires students to apply, integrate and synthesize their knowledge into a real business challenge. 

Your personalized Leadership Development Plan includes a series of assessments that students complete prior to beginning their course.
