Fine-Tune your Leadership Skills

Saint Cyr group shot


This annual seminar is specifically designed to help improve your team-leadership skills through a series of increasingly difficult tasks supervised by leadership experts from the French military.

The Off-Campus Leadership Seminar’s physical and mental challenges teach you how to motivate others even when you are outside your comfort zone. You receive positive, helpful feedback about how you lead and what you can do to improve.

Every student has the opportunity to lead a team of ten classmates and complete a demanding project in an unusual context, such as building a bridge to cross a river or getting all your teammates over a high wall.

You will put your decision-making and leadership skills to the test, far removed from the classroom environment.


The Off-Campus Leadership Seminar is one of the most unforgettable experiences from my time at HEC. It inspired me in numerous ways: always acting with true team spirit, possessing a can-do attitude, and most of all, having a great time while achieving a goal.Wen-Ching Ying,MBA '16
