The city of Paris is world-renowned for its commitment to and expertise in the areas of culture and the arts. Being just a stone's throw away from the HEC Paris campus, the MBA program is exposed to a number of resources afforded by its unique geography.

As a professional club, it also serves primarily to bring knowledge and exposure to a huge variety of industries for the students of the HEC Paris MBA.

To make HEC Paris a center of excellence with future leaders proficient in the fields of both Business and Artificial Intelligence.

While digital profoundly impacts all industries, it is also an ultimate challenge. On one end of the spectrum, there are industries like media or finance that have achieved a high level of digitalization; on the other end, there are industries like healthcare and construction or even luxury, which are just starting to warm up to the idea of digitalization.

Digitalization impacts not only companies’ structures and strategic positioning, but also all levels of an organization and its extended supply chain. Business leaders must constantly challenge organizations to ensure this change can unlock productivity gains and significant competitive advantage - all while delivering exceptional customer experience.

We created the Digital Transformation Club to provide students with a complete overview of what it takes to successfully implement digital transformation within companies. The Club offers a point of contact between HEC Paris MBA students and the various companies across all industries that are involved in digitalization.

Click here to learn more about the club's recent visit to Alstom, a leader in the transportation sector.

Our mission is to:


  • Expose students to real-world digitalization projects through company visits and treks
  • Collaborate with the HEC Idea Center and the MBA’s Digital Innovation Specialization to organize conferences and other events that bring companies to campus
  • Give students an overview of the skills needed to work in a digitalized world
  • Prepare students for the Digital Innovation Specialization
  • Work with the MBA’s Consulting and Industry Clubs to create networking and learning experiences applicable to all three clubs
