Associate Professor, Harvard Business School (USA)
I joined Harvard Business School as Finance Professor, my dream job!
The quality of the HEC Paris PhD Program played a large role in this successful outcome of my job search. The course curriculum and the faculty support I received during my studies from professors and peers strengthened my academic knowledge, and helped me to develop original and innovative research.
This collaborative culture is unique to HEC: during conversations at Northwestern and Duke, I noticed just how different the English-speaking system is. The strength of the Finance department at HEC can be seen in its placements: it is gaining more and more recognition at American universities, which are increasingly open to considering European candidates. HEC students have multiple talents, receive quantitative training as well as schooling in communication, and are well adapted to the demands of the research market. We also benefit from excellent interview preparation to help us succeed during the crucial job market period." Clearly a winning formula!
