HEC Paris, has recently been No 3 worldwide in executive education for 2019 by the Financial Times.
Life-long learning is central to HEC Paris’s strategic vision and lies behind its move up in the Financial Times World Executive Education Rankings.
The ranking is compiled from the scores underlying the Financial Times Executive Education 2019 open-enrolment and custom rankings, wherein both sets of data are given equal weightage.
Two areas in particular have helped HEC Paris to position itself as one of the world’s leading providers of Executive Education.
First, in its focus on entrepreneurship as the institution has worked with start-ups, entrepreneurial ecosystems, and incubators, and this has helped it bring an entrepreneurial and intrapreneurship mindset to its programmes.
Secondly, it focuses on sustainable development and socially responsible business.
The Executive Education team has designed new programmes, combining online learning and sustainability, focusing on understanding how sustainability is transforming business and the way people do business today.
Nathalie Lugagne, associate dean of Executive Education at HEC Paris, said, “We consider it a great honour to have been recognised as one of the world’s leading providers in Executive Education for the past seven years. Such a distinction demands the highest standards and brings with it huge responsibilities. We develop programmes that are at the forefront of innovation both in terms of their content and format in order to provide our participants with a truly unique learning experience. Co-designing our training programmes with our corporate clients and partners ensures that they have both measurable and lasting impact.”
