Admission

What are the admission criteria ?

Our admissions policy aims at securing the highest caliber of participants.

All candidates must fulfil the three entry criteria below:

  • Hold a university degree or equivalent;
  • A minimum of 5 to 7 years of professional experience;
  • Fluency in English.

 

I do not have any business & management education background. Is it a problem ?

No, our participants come from diverse educational backgrounds. Therefore, our curriculum is designed in a way that anyone could follow the courses from the start.

Is it possible to be admitted without a university degree ?

No, our admissions criteria are strict and extensive professional records cannot replace a university degree.

How good must my English level be ?

You must have an English level that corresponds to the B2-C1 European Framework of Reference for Languages. 

Language tests (e.g. TOEFL) are not required but proof of fluency will be tested during the admission interview.

What type of visa/permit do I need to study at HEC ?

Visa requirements vary depending on the country from which you are arriving. Please contact your Embassy or Consulate for details that apply to your particular situation.

Please note that a student visa cannot be requested for our Executive MBA programme. We do not provide any assistance for the visa/permit application.

When should I apply ?

We operate on a rolling admissions process, which means the sooner you apply, the sooner you receive the admission decision.

Since class size is limited and you will be in competition with other candidates, it is advised to apply as early as possible.

Can I interrupt my admission process at anytime ?

Yes. Before the payment of the first instalment upon receipt of the acceptance letter, you can interrupt or postpone your admission to the programme.
