The new HEC Paris website is now online!

The new HEC Paris website is now online!

In a competitive international environment, the site will allow HEC to be:
  • more visible, with updated graphics that retain the HEC trademarks, and a format adapted to mobile browsing
  • more accessible, with a single URL and content adapted to search engines
  • more readable, with a coherent and simplified design, all the latest content in one place, the integration of Knowledge@HEC at the heart of the site, and the launch of the new Program Finder and an HEC Online section
This two-year project has involved a large number of HEC departments, notably our academic programs (Grande Ecole, MBA, PhD, Executive Education), the Faculty, the Centers, Corporate Partnerships & Careers, International Affairs, the IT services and the Communications Department.
Thank you to all those involved and long live!


The first group of 46 students of the HEC Paris MSc in Innovation and Entrepreneurship (MSIE) have just finished their courses and will attend HEC Paris’ graduation ceremony, online or in person, in June 2019.  This 100 percent online program started in September 2017 and was the first completely online degree for the School.
The unique program equips current and aspiring entrepreneurs, consultants and decision makers in the domain of innovation and new business development with the necessary skills to identify and develop new ventures, with an implicit goal to promote sustainability, gender equality, social innovation and well-being. A practical group project where seasoned entrepreneurs accompany participants, is integrated into the curriculum. This gives students the opportunity to work together across geographical and sociological boundaries and apply the academic content toward a real-life new venture, social innovation or business solution.
Peter Todd, Dean of HEC Paris explains: “We are extremely proud of this first graduating MSIE class and the HEC professors and staff involved in its success. As we continue to improve and enhance the student experience, the MSIE proves that we can provide an accessible, very high quality, high-engagement degree program online, reaching a wider and more diverse audience than ever. This has been a transformative experience for all of HEC Paris, from the way in which we serve our students and operate programs behind the scenes, to the way we teach. The MSIE has helped to accelerate innovation at HEC Paris on so many different levels not just online, but across the institution.”
