HEC PARIS

Paris, France

Created in 1881 by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry, HEC Paris ambitions to train high potential individuals, capable of becoming architects of a responsible world. What makes HEC unique is its conviction shared by the HEC Community: knowledge determines the freedom and entrepreneurship required for a better world. This conviction is affirmed with our motto “The more you know, the more you dare”.


This mission is based on two pillars: a rigorous research environment and close connections to the corporate world. The combination of high quality research, underlying the pedagogical innovation at HEC Paris, and close corporate connections, gives the HEC community the necessary tools and background to challenge established rules and to invent the new social and economic paradigms of tomorrow’s world, rather than simply reproduce them.

PRIce of one beer

  • Diogo (Fall 2016): Paris is quite expensive but you can manage to do a relatively-low budget life if you dont go out for dinner or clubs that much. Beer and food we always bought in supermarket and did it together on campus. For lunch, the Campus has a canteen. Don't remember how much it was, but quite affordable.

João (Fall 2016)

Great experience overall. Learned a lot with great teachers. Definitely not an extreme/super different experience like it would be in Asia or Americas, but I manage to create a solid group of friends and was always super fun. Also quite good for network. Most of my colleagues are in great roles now.
