The many professional clubs at HEC Paris MBA provide opportunities to create a peer network of similar interests, meet with alumni, industry leaders and learn more about a particular sector.

Here’s a  first hand account of one of our recent MBA Speaker Series as reported by current student Julie Haspeslagh (Class 2014):

An MBA at HEC Paris is about learning new things and developing yourself: the more you know the more your dare! The modular education system allows us to choose those educational experiences that are best for your personal plan: specialized courses, certificates, internships or fieldwork projects. Doing all this will get you a great education… But…

… that’s not where it stops… An MBA at HEC Paris is more about meeting new people, discovering new cultures and learning about companies, businesses and career choices. One of the greatest ways to experience this is through our student run MBA clubs.
