I would highly recommend the HEC Paris Summer School as the outstanding quality of the professors and the education received throughout the intensive program is remarkable. This program only confirmed my desire to return to HEC for further studies.
As a student interested in business, yet with no prior education in the discipline, the HEC Paris Summer School program seemed like the appropriate introduction to the field. The interdisciplinary approach adopted by the intensive curriculum was particularly compelling, merging questions of entrepreneurship, ethics, and environmentalism into the broader area of social business.
I was particularly responsive to the seminar-based set up of the program. Each seminar was highly specialized and taught by an expert in the field. This kind of pedagogy allows for in-depth discussions amongst students and the professor on a focalized topic. Such courses permit active engagement in the classroom experience, rendering the learning process all the more stimulating.
The diverse student population encountered during the HEC Summer School program was particularly valuable during group collaborations. It was fascinating to observe my peers’ different thought processes, a reflection on our mode of education from each of our academic systems and institutions. These varying perspectives made our conversations rich and dynamic and brought a greater dimension to our final team projects.
My senior year at Princeton University, I applied to HEC Paris Mastère Spécialisé in Media, Art, and Creation. I was accepted into the program and am delighted to be currently engaging once again with HEC’s intellectual community.
In the future, I hope to curate interdisciplinary art exhibits and events in an innovative cultural center.
