Student story

Arantza Ivonne Pineda Sandoval

Summer School


The bonds you make here with like-minded people from all over the world are unique and long lasting


As an HEC Summer School student, you get to experience a lot more than just the academic side. The connections you make here at HEC are one of a kind because you meet people from around the world willing to share their thoughts, ideas and concerns on a topic of your interest. Most of the courses require constant group work and solving real-life industry cases, two aspects that make of the summer school a very enriching opportunity. Also, after a long course-day there is always the chance to grab some lunch or participate in a social activity or stroll around campus.

The quality of the courses is very high and recognized all around the world. I took three different programs within the six weeks I stayed at HEC and each one of those offered me a different challenge with dynamic learning styles. Programs are organized in a way whereby participants meet various speakers that share their own experiences on the topic.

After the Summer School, I came back as an intern on the Summer team and now I am thinking about pursuing my postgraduate studies at HEC.
