About the HEC MBA
The HEC MBA (Full-Time, Part-Time)
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 40 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.
There is no better base for studying international business and launching a global career than Paris. When seeking internships, project hosts, and employers, HEC MBA participants benefit enormously from our location in one of the leading locations for business in Europe. Paris' La Defense, which houses 1,500 corporations, is the largest business district in Europe and lies in proximity to the international commerce hubs of London, Frankfurt, Zurich, and Brussels.
