Part-time

The HEC Paris MBA Part-time option has one intake in January and offers you the opportunity to earn an HEC Paris MBA degree, while still actively pursuing your professional career. The curriculum incorporates a built-in career development program with our Career Management Center.

The program is divided into two phases: Fundamental and Customized. In the 12-month Fundamental Phase, you will acquire the core business skills that are crucial in carving out a successful business career. In the Customized Phase, which can be completed in 6-12 months, you will choose from a broad range of electives and carry out a consulting project, be it with your current company or a different one. You can even apply for a one-week exchange program with UCLA. You also have the option to join the Full-time cohort for one term and do a specialization or go on an international exchange. 

Two Options:

One MBA

The Admissions Process for both our Full-time and Part-time options is the same, and candidates are expected to show the same level of academic accomplishment. Part-time students are able to work alongside their Full-time peers during the Customized Phase of the program, as two intakes become one class, reinforcing the sense of community at HEC.

Win-win options

Benefit from your MBA before you graduate - what you learn in class one week can be directly applied at work the next.
