HISTORY

HEC Paris was founded in 1881 by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry and brings together 160 professors, over 4,500 students and 8,000 executives every year.

In 2010, HEC Paris became the first European partner of Qatar Foundation’s Education City and soon launched the country’s first International Executive MBA. Several thousand executives in the region have since trained with us.

We aim to contribute to Qatar’s National Vision by empowering transformational talent for an advanced, competitive, and knowledge-based economy. 

Message from the Dean

"We are living in times of digital transformation and climate change - times that announce a post-Covid world and times where sustainable development targets struggle to be met. You, tomorrow’s business leaders, must forge innovative business models, consolidate responsible and socially conscious approaches, and embrace all the technological changes that can help us and the planet walk towards better organizations, better communities and ultimately, a better world.

By training tomorrow’s leaders, HEC Paris in Qatar develops the architects of responsible and profitable businesses, guided by a strong ethical compass. We are proud of our exceptional alumni network of over 60,000 professionals in 150 countries, among the world´s best and most dynamic.

HEC Paris in Qatar, as a proud member of Qatar Foundation’s family, is ready to train the leaders of the present and the future, those who will help to create a better world for all of us in Qatar, the MENA region, and the whole world. Dare to learn, and learn to dare with HEC Paris
