About ten days after Nov. submission deadline I received an email stating that my application was approved for the interviews. One week later I received the contacts of the first interviewer and I'm having my first interview tomorrow.

No contacts for the second interviewer though, and at the same time the email stated that all the interviews must be finished before Dec. 30.

Thank you. I should be hearing back even if they choose not to interview me, right? Do you think it may take longer because I am international? (US)

Well, probably for me it was rather fast because I am based in Paris (even though I am also international ;) ).
Anyway, I think you should call them or at least write an email - they are not like the admissions in, for example, INSEAD, where you can't get any info by phone. I called two or three times HEC admissions for different questions and they were always friendly.

And you should also be prepared that you will probably have an interview by phone, since you are in USA. For example, in this topic (Sep. 2010 intake): http://gmatclub.com/forum/hec-paris-sep-2010-intake-75910.html a girl from USA had one of her interviews by phone.

Thank you. I did finally get my interview invite. Is there any information regarding conversion rate (% of interviewed that get accepted?). Any thoughts on the presentation - can it really be about any topic?

i believe the stats are about half the people who get invited for an interview get accepted. i'm not absolutely certain.

and yes, the presentation can be about any topic. Just make sure it's interesting, and mostly PC.

I was offered a place in Oct for the Jan intake but deferred to Sept. The interviews were fine - ran through the presentation slides informally - then really it was about letting me ask questions about the course. I actually ended up going to the pub with the first interviewer - not what I expected!

I have around 7 years work experience in FMCG & scored 690 GMAT

My concern is that I've heard one or 2 negative things about the course - the guy who showed me round said that some of the lecturers were not very good. The course is expensive - I'd be very interested to hear anyone who knows people who have had very positive experiences completing an MBA at HEC?


I spent a semester at HEC as an exchange student in another Master's program. The undergraduate program is well received, but the MBA program (at least the electives) were really disappointing. The professors are practitioners rather than academicians, which I thought would provide tremedous insight into a given subject matter, but in actuality was frustrating, because they lacked the ability to commuicate what they knew to students.--Again, I say this about the electives only. I'm told that the core was very strong.

With that said, all of my HEC friends are employed in their fields of choice.

I have the same impression. But, it is a reduced interest on the GMATClub forum, and I don't think it is representative of the global situation ;)

As far as I know, the timeline for the R2 admission is the following:

1. You must complete both interviews before 30/12/2010
2. Admission jury meeting - 07/01/2010 and admitted candidates are informed the next day

As soon as you are admitted

3. You have two weeks to apply for the fellowship
4. You have one month to pay the first security installment of 6000€

The problem is that INSEAD decision for R2 (I'm in the same boat as you ;) ) is on the Feb 25th, so if you want to use HEC as a security school for INSEAD, the price to pay is 6000€

Hi,
As evp2000fr wrote above, you have only little time to finish the scholarship essay(s).

Once accepted, you will gain an access to your accepted student's account that is a portal for a range of thing such as editable your HEC profile, information of HEC, and scholarship applications. In this portal, you can see which scholarships are available for you, and what essays are required to apply for each of them. I had 3 scholarships options, but managed to apply only for two of them

During my round, the tight timeline for the scholarship essays was a challenge for many people, including myself, because
-each scholarship required a different essay. E.g. a scholarship for women required an an evidence of contributing for women's wellbeing, while a fellowship essay required an evidence of my innovative talent etc.
-you cannot predict the scholarships you receive, and essay questions beforehand

If you are serious about getting into the school, I would recommend that you begin writing the scholarship essays immediately, after you receive access to the portal. Also, having a generic scholarship essay ready ("why I need a scholarship, and/or why I merit a scholarship) will come handy.

Good luck!

I am currently a student at HEC, Paris from Sept 2010 intake so I will try to explain the difference between the two intakes. The dynamics of the two intakes is very different.
1. The Sept intake this time was 186 and Jan intake is approx 60.
2. In general Jan intake is always smaller, they complete their core phase and then do their personalized phase 1 in electives and both intakes finish their time on campus at the same time in Dec. Sept intake finishes their core phase 2 in April and then does internship till august and then pursues a track with electives from sept-dec. Sept and Jan intake take electives together from Sept-Dec.(more information on core and personalized phases can be found in school brochure)
3. Sept intake students internship cycle is in sync with the normal company recruitment while jan intake looks for internships from jan next year and hence not necessarily synched with the standard company recruitment cycles. On the other hand, jan intake has already finished their MBA classes and track so they are free to look for job opportunities rightaway instead of internships if they want.
4. Jan intake is smaller and hence much closer together.
5. Sept intake manages the clubs etc in their core phase 2 while jan intake manages the clubs during their personalized phase 1.

There is a thread on HEC, Paris on pagalguy forum which also gives detailed information on the difference between these 2 intakes.

If you have any specific questions, then feel free to ask.

BNP Paribas is one of the banks that gives student loans(upto 60,000 euros, 2.5%) but you need to provide a guarantee either from a French resident, French citizen working abroad, foreign citizen working in france satisfying some criteria or minimum income etc. Or you can provide guarantee from a bank from your native country(conditions vary depending on the bank and country)(rate would be 3.5% in this case).

One more difference - in September intake you have an option to choose bilingual program, where part of the (core?) courses are taught in French. There is no such option for January intake.

The January intake is also seems to be more competitive, at least it has higher GMAT average.
