The HEC Paris MBA

HEC Paris Business School, established in 1881, is one of the leading MBA programs in Europe, offering a 16-month program of study. The program is medium-sized with strongholds in marketing and strategy. The school only began accepting women in 1973, and 31% of the current class are women. The average age of students is 30, and over 80% come from outside of France.

The school also offers special programs of study (certificates to which MBA students can also register) in five main areas: Social Business, Real Estate, Luxury Goods, Energy and Finance, and Digital Marketing.

In terms of the admissions process, the school is unique in its offer of initial evaluations of candidates’ profiles and their chances for admission even before applying.

Every year in the month of May, the school hosts a big event called MBAT, which involves sport competitions with hundreds of participants from various European MBA programs. Recently, the school established an exchange program for students in cooperation with the MBA program at Tel Aviv University.

The school’s alumni network includes about 40,000 alumni, among them three members of the French government.
