The exchange at HEC was one of the most enriching experiences in my academic career
In my opinion, the most defining aspect of studying at HEC is that the concept of business school is perfectly embodied here. The outstandingly trained and renowned professors succeed perfectly in putting theoretical concepts into the context of practice and thus real-world problems. This allowed me to approach newly learned content from a different perspective, and thus constantly develop myself further. Adding to this aspect was the high quality of the other students, which made me step out of my comfort zone on a daily basis. The last point mentioned, the network of the HEC, is certainly one thing that has given me unforgettable impressions in addition to many friendships. Of particular note here are the opportunities to listen to guest speakers such as Daniel Kahneman, Michael E. Porter, and Christine Lagarde.
In summary, HEC offers the perfect combination of outstanding teaching and the opportunity to live in a world metropolis - the exchange at HEC was one of the most enriching experiences in my academic career and would therefore definitely recommend it to anyone.
