Off-Campus Leadership Seminar

Each year, the entire HEC Paris MBA class (both full-time and part-time) takes part in the 2-day off-campus Leadership Seminar at Saint-Cyr Military Academy. Over the course of the seminar, you will exercise and demonstrate your team leadership skills by participating in various field exercises. You will carry out a unique set of training activities in small teams under the supervision of French army officers who are accustomed to making difficult decisions under pressure.

During the seminar, you will lead a team of ten classmates to perform a real task in an unusual context, such as leading a group of people across a river, which will put your decision-making and leadership skills to the test, far removed from the classroom environment.
