About HEC (Hautes Etudes Commerciales or HEC Paris School of Management)

HEC is a French “Grande Ecole de Commerce” and arguably the most respected in the country. The other leading “Grande Ecole” is X (Polytechnique) which is an engineering school. Admission to the school is reserved for a tried and tested elite, which guarantees that graduates will have exceptional intellectual and commercial abilities. However, and in spite of great efforts to make HEC an international and bilingual school, it remains more recognized in France than globally. It has an outstanding web presence which reflects highly on the institution. On the GPA scale, perception remains and limiting factor (close associated with G for globalization), but HEC is a solid Top 50 institution.
