Dear HEC Paris MBA participants,
Welcome and congratulations on joining our MBA Program!
At HEC Paris MBA, our mission is to transform high-potential managers into tomorrow’s leaders. In joining us, you are entering a truly multicultural environment made up of approximately 60 nationalities with a diverse range of professional backgrounds. This unique international student body within a maximum class size of 300 fosters leadership development and prepares you for the global job market.
We believe that leadership is a transformative process which is possible through a rigorous combination of academic theory and learning by doing. We teach you the theories behind leadership, then offer plenty of hands-on, practical experiences to put those theories to the test.
Integrated into our curriculum are student-run seminars and events designed to hone your leadership and management skills. For example, in the Global CEO Speaker Series, students are able to ask questions of some of the most well-known leaders in business today. The MBA Tournament is an entirely participant-run, three-day multisport event in which you not only organize but also compete while you are welcoming more than 1500 MBAs from the best business schools in Europe to HEC Paris. Another example is the Off-campus Leadership Seminar, which helps you learn leadership skills and tests your abilities to manage a team under challenging circumstances. Such experiences give you the opportunity to transfer the knowledge that you learn in the classroom into real-life situations.
Earning an MBA at HEC Paris will not only equip you with the skills needed to transform your career; it will also give you the network and contacts to support your professional development. Each HEC Paris MBA participant receives customized job-search advice from alumni, consultants and counselors within our Career Center before they are exposed to the hundreds of job recruiters who visit campus every year. Upon graduation from HEC Paris, you will join the 60,000+ strong Alumni network, which spans the globe and encompasses myriad job sectors, and which will offer you a bridge to the international job market.
I hope you will take the time to explore our dynamic MBA community, and I look forward to meeting you on campus!
