Commencement Ceremony Bravo and congratulations to all!

Commencement Ceremony
Bravo and congratulations to all!

The ceremony was a great success thanks to the commitment of everyone. Thanks to this collective effort, we welcomed more than 6,000 people during two days of festivities last Friday and Saturday.

This year, we welcomed the first graduating class of our MSc in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, our 100% online program! A special system was set up Saturday so that non-present graduates could follow the ceremony remotely.

Our HEC community, students, families, professors and collaborators were able to share the highlights of the two days thanks to our social networks under the event’s hashtag: #HECgrad19

HEC Paris joins global leading universities to form U7 Alliance

This unique international alliance of university presidents will hold its first global summit in Paris on 9-10 July 2019, under the high patronage of the President of the Republic of France Emmanuel Macron.
This inaugural 2019 summit will tackle 5 major global challenges: the key role of universities in a global world, climate change and cleaner energy, inequality and polarized societies, technological transformations, and community engagement and impact.

The U7 Alliance is an international alliance of university presidents who will engage both in discussion and in concrete action by making commitments that universities may take to address the most pressing global challenges in a multilateral context. It is the very first alliance of university presidents aimed at structuring and advancing their role as global actors across the multilateral agenda
