Founded in 1881, HEC Paris is one of the oldest business schools in the world. HEC sits on a 300-acre campus on the outskirts of Paris. The school opened a new high-tech MBA building in 2012.
The curriculum is divided into a fundamental phase and a customized phase. During the fundamental phase, students take core classes and work with career coaches.
During the customized phase, they take electives and may go on international exchanges. Experiential learning is the heart of HEC's MBA program and most students engage in a fieldwork project during the customized phase.
