Starting at HEC

- Fundamental Phase at HEC, Customized Phase at KBS 

Students beginning their studies at HEC will follow the Fundamental Phase (two terms), and may be part of either the September or January intake for the Full-Time MBA.

For the Customized Phase at KBS, students will begin in April if there were part of the September intake at HEC Paris MBA, or they will begin in September if they were in the January intake at HEC Paris MBA. There are two semesters that make up the second phase of study.
