7 to 8%

of HEC Paris’s development budget financed by the foundation each year

… which has laid the foundations…

Each year the Foundation finances around 7 to 8% of HEC Paris’s total development budget by giving an annual donation, which is evidence of its long-lasting support, which reached almost 32 million euros capitalized on at the end of 2013.

… for a project promoting academic excellence, both open and inclusive
