HEC Paris & Ecole de Guerre partnership
HEC Paris signed in January 2019 a partnership with Ecole de Guerre to share a program involving mixed teams of students from both schools.
The participants will work every year on a digital project during a two weeks challenge then a two months "launchpad mission".
For this first edition, the project consists in designing an open source analysis and monitoring tool that could be used in operations on the field. Five multidisciplinary teams battled each other for two weeks before presenting their project to a Jury. Composed of experienced officers from Ecole de Guerre, students from the HEC Paris Digital Master and MSc X-HEC Data science & IA for business, Ecole 42 and e-Artsup, the teams pitched their projects in the prestigious Foch amphitheater of Ecole Militaire.
The winning team is currently following a project acceleration phase of 8 weeks ending in March.
