HEC being a business school, most courses are management related (ie., accounting, finance, marketing, company law, business strategy…). These are somewhat dry but are useful to help one understand how a business is run. It is a shame, however, that students seldom have the opportunity to explore non-business-related electives, as the few available are very interesting. Furthermore, this would broaden the horizons of an academically brilliant student body.
The quality of teaching varies significantly. Much of the infrastructure is starting to feel antiquated, though some if is due to be renewed over the years to come.
Before applying, I would suggest one carefully looks at the curriculum to see whether the classes are of interest to the applicant. If one does not enjoy business-related subjects, one’s experience at HEC can be frankly unenjoyable, especially given that the campus is quite isolated.
Regarding internationality, value and career prospects, the statistics speak for themselves.
