Since its foundation in 1881, three fundamental values have characterized HEC Paris : academic excellence, community spirit and commitment to diversity. Today, it is one of the best schools in the world. It is regularly highlighted in the most demanding international rankings.
It was one of the first to obtain official recognition of its diploma by the State, thus reinforcing its credibility with engineering schools and university bachelor’s degrees. Subsequently, HEC gradually introduced an entrance examination in order to stand out from other schools. In 1964, it moved to the Jouy-en-Josas campus near Paris.
In 2000, the HEC Group was the first French business school to obtain the triple EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB accreditation (awarded by the International Association for Management Education). The school shares the idea that you have to “learn to dare” to succeed. The professors conduct cutting-edge management research, examining the role and impact of organizations or markets. Academic programs develop tomorrow’s leaders. The boundaries of teaching and research are constantly being pushed back, in keeping with the school’s core values of excellence, diversity and community.
