At HEC Paris we understand that leadership comes from experience. Our students learn from hands-on exercises such as our annual Sustainable Business Conference, the world famous MBAT and our original St-Cyr Leadership Seminar during which students spend two days in the elite military training center, benefiting from the opportunity to practice
their decision-making skills. Our top recruiters reflect our students’ abilities: Amazon, L’Oreal, McKinsey, AT Kearney and BNP Paribas to name just a few who value our graduates.
