HEC business school in Paris plans to expand its range of international executive education programmes.
An English EMBA is to run alongside the school’s new bi-lingual (French and English) EMBA which begins next year. Four of the programme’s 12 modules will be taught overseas.
HEC also plans to deliver an EMBA in China. The programme has been designed for a government body responsible for more than 160 state-owned enterprises and will help the Chinese executives to turn these companies into global competitors.
“To achieve our aim of maintaining a position as a world-leading business school, we are offering more international programmes to executives based all over the world,” says Bertrand Moingeon, associate dean for executive education.
Any organisation that wishes to compete on the global stage must have an international approach, he adds.
HEC, with its partners the Stern School of Business, New York University and the London School of Economics, already offers the Trium Global EMBA.
