The HEC Paris PhD program truly prepared me to be able to stand out as an independent researcher.



At HEC I had the chance to grow personally and professionally thanks to a rigorous training program, freedom to pursue my original ideas, and support from highly qualified faculty members. Additionally, from my second year onwards, the program sponsored me to travel to international conferences where I had the opportunity not only to present my work but also to grow my professional network. Finally, the PhD program at HEC truly prepared me to be able to stand out as an independent researcher who can conceive and pursue original research questions, and this is a quality that many employers seek in the academia.
