What is it like to be a student at HEC Paris MBA? Student Voices is a student contributed section where current and past students share their first-hand experiences of life on campus and beyond.
“Leadership has evolved over the last years…. people and companies used to be at the service of their CEOs and leaders, and nowadays a modern leader has to be at the service of their team, company and people.”
– Jean Yves Fillion
“This is just one of the many and very valuable lessons that I learned while having the opportunity to speak with and interview Mr. Jean-Yves Fillion (CEO of BNP Paribas North America and Head of the Americas Region).
This event, known as the CEO Speaker Series and organized by the General Management & Leadership Club, brings top CEOs and Business Leaders to campus for an evening of intimate discussion with the students. These guest speakers open up and talk about their past experiences in business and offer invaluable advice to the leaders of tomorrow, as well as answer any specific questions students may have.
Engaging with these accomplished business leaders constitutes a golden opportunity for the students to learn from their experiences (and sometimes even their failures!) and listen to their secrets for success. For whilst we believe in “learning by doing,” we also realize the importance of reflection and learning by example.”
