Thanks to the HEC USA Office a group of 40 participants from the HEC Executive MBA (class 2020), major Leading Digital Transformation went to Facebook headquarters in California.

HEC Alumna Fidji Simo (H08), Head of the Facebook App, was kind enough to receive the group at her office of Menlo Park, just next to San Francisco. She gave a very personal testimony of her special path from the south of France to HEC and to California. Fidji Simo can be considered one of the most influential people in the digital sector in the US and in the world. She also gave her opinion on social media's future and answered all questions from the audience very transparently.

This insightful visit was part of a one week learning expedition supervised by Albert Meige, Academic Director of the HEC Paris EMBA Major / HEC Executive Certificate Leading Digital Transformation.
