The bonds you make here with like-minded people from all over the world are unique and long lasting
Being a student of the HEC Summer School extends far beyond pure academics. Most of the courses require group work in order to solve real-life industry cases and the bonds you make here with like-minded people from all over the world are unique and long lasting. Furthermore, after a long day, there is always a chance to take part in a social activity organized by the summer school staff.
The quality of the teaching is world-renowned: I took three different courses during my six weeks at HEC and each one of these offered a different challenge. During my time there, I met various speakers who shared their views on different topics whilst others encouraged a more practical approach to work.
The dorms and campus are charming and make you feel welcome, whilst the location allows you to focus on your studies and simultaneously experience the wealth of activities which Paris has to offer.
After the Summer School, I came back as an intern and am now thinking about pursuing my postgraduate studies at HEC.
