The HEC Paris Executive MBA program is available in five part-time tracks that allow students to select a format that fits with their lifestyle and professional career. The 18-month program features three key components – core courses, custom courses and a Capstone Project.
Our innovative, hands-on learning approach combines case studies, workshops, interactive role-plays and testimonials from senior executives and industry experts. Part of the program is delivered via distance learning solutions, which allow students to explore certain aspects of the program in greater depth. The program also includes a personal and professional development program to provide students with the skills and confidence to take their career to the next level.
The HEC Paris EMBA program features a total of 49 in-person days.
Students also complete mandatory learning content in between modules. This may consist of readings, interactive digital content, cases, simulations, office hours, webinars, online quizzes, videos and more. These learning tools give students control over the materials they would like to reinforce or review prior to the subsequent session.
Asynchronous digital content can be completed at each student's own pace. Synchronous digital content is scheduled well in advance for a specific time and date, so all students must be present at the same time.
We estimate a time commitment of 8-10 hours per week for this content, not including other homework and the Capstone Project.

The grade de master, or master's degree, is acquired through various diplomas, and officially establishes the level of training at bac + 5. It comes after the bachelor's degree (bac + 3) and precedes the doctorate (bac + 8). It is translated into a number of credits (ECTS): a student conferred the grade de master has accumulated 300 ECTS (180 during their bachelor's degree and 120 for the master's degree) during his or her higher education studies, allowing him or her to continue on to a doctorate. Degrees were introduced in France to facilitate European mobility of students and the integration of diplomas between European countries.
