HEC Paris MBA - Who knows/is interested about it? - FAQs [#permalink] New post 12 Jan 2007, 05:28

BOOKMARKED
Hi all,

I'm applying to HEC as my number 1 BSchool. I apply to it and I will wait for the result of it before eventually thinking of others :)

I would like that we share our points of view about this school, its program :)... I think that some of us would be glad to have more information and a debate over this school :)

Why do I appreciate this school?
> The atmosphere :)... One feels it since he has crossed the entrance door. People have a helpfull and warming attitude. The focus is done on a collaborative mode :)... It's my natural preference ;)... Competition among one another is already all around, at least, not too much in the HEC MBA.

> The international participant : more than 80% are foreigners. It's exactly what I'm looking for as the key improvment of a global understanding :)

> The program length is adequalty fitted to me : 16 months. That's just enough to transform myself and to not remain too longly out of a concreate occupation.

Well, please, your views, guys :D :)

Hi fig,

I must admit I'm not very knowledgeable on this school... could you tell me in which way does HEC differentiate itself form INSEAD? (I'm asking that because I saw you were highlighting some positive aspects of HEC - e.g. international environment, not too long program - that happen to be positive aspects of INSEAD too)

How would you compare the two schools?

Fig

I think LBS would also fit in the profile you described, it may be a little bit more competitive, but it is international and you can finish its programme in 15 mths (without the internship).

INSEAD (and IMD) is a very compact and intense programme, if you enter in the summer you do not have the intership option as you have in the winter intake, however, is a much more known institute than HEC is (this is not my opinion, it is what I know by reading, perusing ranks and asking people).

Personnaly, I think most of the european programmes are much more "global" in terms of student's nationality than the american ones. The good thing about HEC is that if you do not speak French, 16mths is better to learn, than it is the 10mths from INSEAD :wink:

timothycosulich, I should admit I was not expected a fast question back to me ;)

Out of objective measures and rankings that place an important gap between the 2 schools, the most differientiative aspect is probably the spirit.

With 100 participants an intake and 4 months more than INSEAD, HEC brings a particular environment for its participants :)... I'm convinced that this spirit is that of a huge family and that it is present in all people from this school. It's true for the staff, for the students and for the alumni, of course :)

It's really depending on who u are and what u are looking for in order to develop all your potential. On these questions, I have already my answers. :)... and HEC would play, if admitted, the major role in it :)

Hope that it answers on some of your questions :)

I probably know only as much as you do Fig.
But I have seen number of Indian students with decent GMAT (680+ ) and comparatively less experience (about 2-3 years) applying for HEC and getting through it.

Really?... That surprises me :) I mean the average at HEC MBA is 29>30 years old... As well, a 6 years average for the work experience :)

Perhaps it is more related to Indian Students... :)

:) Quite possible. Does HEC like engineers more? Caz most of them were engineers.

Well, my analysis is that:
> 20% of participants are frenchmen
> 90% of the frenchmen are engineers (higly probable if we refer to the french education system)

Image

That said, it gives us 18% from the total of 30% of engineers who comes exclusively from France.

I would say that there is a preference from french engineers to apply to HEC :)

Also, I do not apply for other schools :)

Another thing, guys, have u already heard about the MBAt organized by HEC?

http://www.mbat.org/mbat/2007/home/home.shtml

The principle is to organize several sport competitions for 4 days. 13 Europeans bSchool are present. :)

I should say that, if all is ok, I would be in the HEC basket ball team on 2008 ;)...

Well, LBS has performed well in the last 2 years (2nd in 2005 and 1st in 2006) so I won't be surprised if they win again this year. Well, all the best to HEC, you'll need it against LBS rugby team at least :)
