Annual London Finance Study Trip
Students from the Master in International Finance and Master in Economics and Finance kicked off their year with a Study Trip to London! Over 40 prestigious companies participated and met HEC Paris Students in the course of 3 very intensive days.
During this trip, our 260 students had the opportunity to learn more about the culture of each financial institution, the variety of jobs and sectors, and to exchange with senior and junior team members of these companies.
The trip included a networking evening at the Caledonian Club with more than 60 HEC Paris alumni working in Finance. A huge thank you to all of them for their time and the precious advice to the students!
This annual flagship event reinforces the link between financial institutions based in London and HEC Paris and boosts their attractivity as employer to future HEC Paris graduates – it is a key step in our students’ journey to finance.
The event was organized by the HEC UK Office team, who represents HEC Paris in the UK and has deep longstanding relationships with financial institutions in London – the students highly rated their trip, with an average satisfaction rate of 90%!
