Seems like HEC made an error with the admission email. All relevant info in the new email including scholarship apps. Slightly ridiculous to be due on the 20th in my opinion given the long essays required. What scholarships is everyone applying to?

Whichever I’m eligible to. Merit and L’Oréal. Yeah, the 1500 words essay is killing me.

Guys I have admits from three programs. Rice is giving me a full ride so I'm definitely more inclined towards it. UNC initially waitlisted me but then called me later to offer a seat so I'm in there too and now HEC. I was just wondering if any Indian applicants is in the same quandary as I am?

Though HEC is an excellent program we do need to be fluent in French, which I know how to read in and write but still lacking on the speaking front, and given my post MBA goals I feel this could handicap me when it comes to post MBA opportunities.

I would love to know opinion of folks who are non EU citizens who are thinking of joining HEC Paris.

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know what does it mean when they wrote a months name in front of the amount awarded?

What are the job prospects like for those who don't speak French fluently post-MBA? Are any non-French speakers planning to stay in France after HEC?

I know someone who completed his course this December. He told me that it is difficult to get an internship without knowing any French. However, since HEC is a growing brand in Western Europe, job prospects are good as you can look outside of France too.

On a personal level, I'm learning elementary French online as I'll happily work in France if given the opportunity. First choice though, remains London.

I've talked to a lot of Indian students, both current and former, at HEC and they did say that job prospects are tough. A lot of them went back to India or got opportunities in Middle East especially for consulting. All things considered, I decided to not move ahead with HEC.

So, in a nutshell, I'd say reach out to current students on LinkedIn and ask questions. Poets and Quants did a blog on all the admitted students for 2018 and 19 so you can easily find their names. Reach out to them and you'd have a much better idea.

All the students told me that the experience at HEC itself is fantastic. It's a very global program and way more diverse than the topmost US program but inherently it's a difficult prospect to land a job in Europe if you're a non EU citizen.
