The HEC MBA program offers participants the unique and valuable experience of being immersed in a student body of highly diverse academic and professional backgrounds. Teamed with exceptionally talented peers from over 50 countries, participants push each other to achieve, to realize their full potential and ultimately to develop and sharpen their leadership skills.
In addition to the full-time 16 month MBA, the part-time MBA (one week per month over 24 months) offers participants a unique opportunity to enhance their knowledge base, maximize their leadership potential, and expand their corporate network, while maintaining a balance between their personal and professional lives.
The program is divided into two phases. During the fundamental phase participants develop comprehensive management knowledge and techniques in 11 core subjects including economics, finance, marketing, organizational behavior and ethics.
In the customized phase, full-time participants concentrate on one of five subject areas, or carry out an international exchange. They also select from a range of electives, or gain corporate exposure through an individual or group fieldwork project. Additionally we have 12 double degree programs available with partner schools around the world.
Part-time participants choose from a range of electives, and carry out a consulting project to put their technical training into practice, making a meaningful impact on real organizations. International experience is gained through a mandatory exchange with the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore, and some participants go on exchange to UCLA. In place of electives, participants can opt to carry out a Major with HEC Paris Executive Education, in a range of subjects such as Luxury, and Aerospace and Aviation.
Leadership is a transformative process enhanced through hands-on, practical experience and experiential learning initiatives: integrated into our curriculum are seminars and student-run events. For example, the MBA sports Tournament is a participant-run event in which HEC MBA participants not only organize but compete as they welcome around 1500 MBAs from some of the best business schools in Europe. Another example is the Situational Leadership Seminar, which exercises participants leadership skills during a stay at St Cyr military training camp as they learn to manage their teams.
The HEC MBA Career Management Center offers training in adapting job search skills to differing geographies. Participants receive customized job-search advice from consultants, coaches, peers and from our alumni network of over 44,000. We provide individual coaching and counseling to help smooth navigation through the program and, ultimately, pave the way to a fulfilling professional life. The careers approach is customized to the individual, whether the aim is to advance in their current career path or to make a radical career change.
