HEC Paris MBA September 2016 - calling all applicants!


Rachel84

I'm going to be applying to the MBA from HEC Paris, for the September 2016 intake.

I just wanted to start a topic so that others who are interested can discuss.

About me: British, 31, female. Four years of work experience in marketing coordination + two years doing PR for startups.

I started studying French last year and am currently at B2. Hope to get to at least C1 by intake.

I am also considering applying to other schools in France such as ESSEC. But HEC is my primary target.

Hi There :) I'm also hoping to apply for the September 2016 intake but I still need to take my GMAT which is scheduled for February 2016. I took french at school for a year but will need to sign up for a refresher course in the new year.

Any tips or suggestions on the application process, essays etc would be great!

Some info about me...I am 35 and currently live and work in South Africa. Due to exchange rates - particularly given the recent nosedive the Rand took against most other currencies - I never thought I would be able to do my MBA overseas as its extremely costly but am hoping to get a loan to cover any shortfall. The ROI on the top MBA programs is excellent so I am hoping the risk will pay off (and I won't be left sleeping on my parents' couch post graduation) ;)

I am an attorney as well as a qualified company (chartered) secretary and have recently obtained my CAPM through PMI in the States (certified professional in project management). I have 6 years experience at a law firm and 6 years in a senior management capacity with a global corporate in the financial services industry. I'm looking to move out of a specialised legal, compliance and risk management role into a more strategic management role, potentially with a consulting firm, although I'm open to new opportunities in other sectors.

I have family in the UK so am considering applying to Cambridge and also to St Gallen in Switzerland (primarily due to work synergies there). I was considering INSEAD but the language requirements for entry and tight application deadlines make it somewhat difficult for me.

Would be great to hear how everyone's applications are going! Good luck :)

Hi All,

I am David, currently preparing for GMAT. I am interested to apply to HEC Paris. I checked the deadlines for FALL 2016 applications on the website, it was really confusing with a number of dates.
Can you tell me the deadlines for Fall 2016 applicants?
Also, the website says class average score on GMAT is 685 but the minimum score required is 600?
How much should one score on GMAT to get into HEC?
I have about 5 years of work exp in a Semiconductor Industry. I have done my Masters in USA and worked in US for about 4 years.
Thanks
-David

Hello

I had requested HEC for profile evaluation. And I got the reply that everything looks good except GMAT (610), I should try to improve the GMAT though it is not the only criteria
I have 4 years of industrial experience with descent international exposure.

I really hate GMAT, I will try my luck with this low GMAT score

Good luck everyone !

Your GMAT score is 75 points lower than the average; that's quite a substantial difference. That, couple with the fact that your work experience is less than the average of the current cohort (6 years), I'd say that you have quite an uphill battle to get into the MBA at HEC.
