Just be confident and be yourself. content doesn't matter as much as your confidence and presentation skills do.

Any topic is fine as long as it relates to you in some way and you can answer questions related to it.
Try to make it interesting with few images. Stats are fine but dont go overboard with them.
Try to explain with examples and keep your interviewer interested.

My interviewer asked me for a copy of presentation because he wanted to read more about it.


Overall the presentation topic does not matter that much. What matters is your presentation and communication style.

Hi,

Couldn't find a separate discussion for those who applied for Jan 16 intake. Has anyone applied recently for Jan 16 intake? Have you received any letters from school?

Hi cyrill001,
Good to see January 2016 applicants start so early. Thread for January 2016 Intake has been created recently. Here's the link:

Acceptance rate is 20% - http://poetsandquants.com/2015/01/03/th ... schools/2/
Roughly 70% of those interviewed are made an offer of admission - you can find this info in previous posts on this forum.

Hi orangeterror,

I haven't been keeping a track of students pursuing Strategy roles but I would suggest that you go through the Career Choices report which has been uploaded on Page 1 of this thread. You will find most of the details there. Also, you can check out alumni profiles on LinkedIn.

FROM HEC Paris Admissions Blog: Student Voices: Latin American Cultural Week
Vanessa Garay, HEC Paris MBA, Class of 2016

What is it like to be a student at HEC Paris MBA? Student Voices is a student contributed section where current students share their first-hand experiences of life on campus and beyond.

 

Image

 

Having the opportunity to share our cultures with our fellow MBAs through Cultural weeks is trulyamazing. I believe it is really important to show our peers that Latin America is not necessarily what is presented in the news show or what tourists have said about it. From my point of view, it is our duty to tell our fellow MBAs about the many positives of Latin America and to share with them what makes our countries beautiful. Personally, I feel like an ambassador for Peru, so I really enjoy sharing the wonders my country has to offer.

Image

One of the main reasons why I chose to do my MBA at HEC Paris was the diversity. Because of the diversity of my class, I feel like I am obtaining a global outlook by learning from people who possess different ways of thinking and doing things. It has also allowed me to learn from different cultures first-hand, whilst developing a professional network from which, I am sure, I will benefit in the future.   Within the Latin American community, I have benefited from the understanding of our similarities and the relations among the countries. In addition, I got to know the working cultures of these countries, which I found important since there are many Latin American companies that have operations in Peru.

Image

 

The events kicked off on February 4th with a fair in which all the Latin-American countries were represented. This fair allowed us to display a little of our cultures through snacks, drinks, and images of our countries. It was satisfying to see so many people from all over the world discovering and enjoying our colors and flavors. During the fair, we also enjoyed some Salsa and Argentinian Tango displays so the crowd could experience and enjoy some Latin American rhythms.

Image

 

The next day we organized a Mexican dinner that was a huge success: we sold the 110 tickets available in just one day. During dinner, a Mariachi band performed special song requests and delighted people with both happy and emotional songs, while students drank margaritas made by part of the Mexican gang.  After this, we had an all‐night party at the Piano Bar that included beating and breaking a candy-filled Piñata. People enjoyed modern songs from all over Latin America, including the well-known rhythms of Reggaeton, Salsa and Bachata, among others.

Image

I found organizing the Latin week as a rewarding and educational opportunity. Leading and organizing these events for around 200 people, while I managed my time in order to fulfill my academic responsibilities, was a great experience. However, I have to say that for me the highlight of all this was to see how much all of us enjoyed the activities we organized, and the satisfaction we, the Latin American community, shared at the end of the Latin week. I personally believe that discovering new cultures and experiencing other customs has allowed me to understand different ways of thinking and to obtain knowledge I cannot obtain from just books. Therefore, I am really looking forward to all the cultural weeks that will take place in the next weeks, especially because I haven’t been in any of the countries that will be presented in the cultural weeks to come.

Hi angelfire213,

Good to hear that you are halfway through the interviews. The number of questions, type of interview(stress/relaxed), etc depends on the interviewer. In our intake some people had very lengthy and grilling interviews whereas the others got very chilled out interviewers who just had a brief conversation to understand whether they were a good fit for HEC. This is the reason HEC has two interviews. They try to eliminate bias as much as possible.
Good luck for your second interview!
