We recently held an International Welcome Event to some of the world’s top companies and influencers within the MBA education arena. It was our pleasure to have Daniela Locreille from Hobsons U.S., Beat the GMAT over the three days.
On Friday the group got a firsthand introduction to the HEC Paris MBA experience; our long history of educational excellence and our goals for the future of the program was presented by Dean Bernard Garrette.
Later on, after the presentation we dispatched for a tour of the campus with some of the other stakeholders and members of the MBA program team such as Luciano Roland (Associate Director Development Global Initiatives) and Philippe Oster (HEC Paris MBA Communication, Development and Admissions Director).
We wrapped up event was a networking dinner at the Trianon Palace Hotel in Versailles.
Saturday was Grand Slam day. We gathered at the famous French Open for breakfast and then on to some tennis watching.
Daniela, Director of Student Marketing, specializes in global strategic marketing, communication and student outreach, as well as development of key in-country partnerships to position Hobsons top products worldwide.
“I was very impressed by the warm welcome of the administrators and faculty of HEC, Paris. This was probably the most global staff I have ever met, from over 30 different countries, one cannot stop but think what a rich multicultural experience it must be to study here. The highlight of the event was hearing first-hand the experiences of 4 current MBA students, what made them choose this prestigious institution over others that were probably more suitable because they were in their own home countries. Each one of these students exuded values that any company would like to have in their employees: true leadership, passion and purpose, a dare to challenge their environment and above all camaraderie and teamwork.”
We look forward to a continuous collaboration from companies such as Hobsons, BEAT The GMAT for creating such a strong online network of information to top level MBA candidates and also spreading the message of HEC Paris MBA internationally.
