HEC Paris has a long history of excellence that is tied to the prestigious French Open at Roland Garros.

Roland Garros is a noted French aviator who studied in HEC Paris and who became famous when he achieved the first non-stop flight across the Mediterranean Sea in 1913. In 1920s, a tennis centre which he attended consistently when he was studying in Paris was named after the pilot – Stade de Roland Garros – which accommodates the French Open, one of tennis’ Grand Slam tournaments.

This past Saturday June 1st 2013, we held a networking event with international alums, students, professors,  and perspectives.  Some of the guests came from the USA, China, Russia, Germany, Spain, Italy and Greece and were hosted in a special VIP Tent in collaboration with Roland Garros.

Here are some photos from the event:
