Times higher education ranks hec paris #3 worldwide

HEC Paris has been ranked #3 institution worldwide and #1 in Europe by the Times Higher Education

ranking the alma master

Times Higher Education has just released its ranking of universities which are best at producing senior business leaders worldwide. HEC Paris took third place.

This ranking considered the Alma Maters of the chief executives of the Fortune Global 500 companies, alongside the annual revenue achieved by these destination companies.

In the listing, HEC Paris follows closely behind only two top American Universities: Stanford and Harvard to be classed as the institution which has educated the third most successful CEOs in the whole world as of 2017.

paris rank 3 alma


HEC Paris educated the second highest number of CEOs in this table, jointly with Stanford University, with each of the prestigious institutions having trained 12 CEOs. This is noteworthy given that, apart from the top three institutions in the tables (HEC Paris, Stanford and Harvard), the rest of the top 400 institutions had only educated around two CEOs each on average.

In terms of European Business Schools, HEC Paris is the highest-scoring establishment present in this prominent Times Higher Education ranking.
