The Social Business / Enterprise and Poverty Certificate is open, on selection, to HEC students but also to managers, visiting professors and students from other schools and universities.

It will take place from April 29 to June 5, 2019 on the HEC campus in Jouy-en-Josas.

For free-mover applicants, the selection process differs from that for HEC applicants but the program remains the same. 


For the last ten years, we have welcomed more than 580 participants from many horizons within HEC, as well as further afield  (Polytechnique, AgroParisTech, Paris-based Universities), and internationally.

The aim is not for all participants to work in social business, rather to raise awareness of the importance of societal issues in each field, and to be inquisitive about the role and influence of business in society. We value highly motivated candidates from all parts of the community interested in creating positive change in the business world.

To apply for a seat in the Social Business / Enterprise and Poverty Certificate as a free-mover, please submit your supporting documentation by e-mail.

The application process is open until February 1, 2019

The selection is a 2 phase process:

  • A first selection is made based on the evaluation of your application and supporting documents.
  • The pre-selected candidates will then be invited for a face-to-face or Skype interview.
  • Résumé (CV)
  • Letter of motivation.
  • For all non-native English speakers, proof of English fluency (e.g., TOEFL or TOEIC) or evidence (e.g., transcript) of coursework completed in the English language.

Pre-selected applicants are invited to a 30 minute interview (on campus or Skype). During this interview they are encouraged to discuss their motivation, interests, and goals with professors of the program.
