About

The HEC Foundation

The HEC Foundation

A government-recognized public-interest organization founded in 1972, the HEC Foundation contributes to the development of strategic academic projects at HEC Paris through the funding of student scholarships, entrepreneurship, digital transformation, social responsibility and international diversity.

 

4 strategic priorities supported by the HEC Foundation

Scholarships

Those last years, HEC has been one of the most committed French schools to make its teaching accessible to all talents! The impact is clear: today, HEC Paris offers scholarships to 18% of its students (against 5% 10 years ago).

Think

Entrepreneurship

Thanks to donations, the HEC Foundation promotes the creation of businesses via support and incubation activities and financing companies’ design, recovery or expansion projects as they first start out.

Research

In order for research at HEC Paris to be recognised worldwide, research professors are required to publish high-quality articles in the most renowned of journals.

Digital

At HEC Paris, the push for digital technology is designed not only to help with the education of our students and facilitate teaching and research for the Faculty, but also to help strengthen cooperation with our business community and partnerships.

Yasmine témoignage de boursiers Fondation HEC

I wasn’t really destined for an HEC education. […] Where I come from, getting your high school diploma is an end in itself. HEC just isn’t a possibility, not only because of financial barriers but also symbolic ones. Nobody talks to us about it, and no one believes we can do it, it’s another world, not for us, it doesn’t even cross our mind. […] The support for scholarship students meant my dream could now become a reality.
