Real Humans of the HEC Paris MBA Class of 2022

We head to HEC Paris, located in the Paris-Saclay Innovation Cluster just kilometers from the center of Paris, in this edition of Real Humans: MBA Students.

The 16-month long MBA program has two intakes, one in September and the other in January. Combined, the two cohorts are comprised of 290 students. January students still have time to defer, confirm, or decline their places in the program, so the official class size for 2022 may increase by a few dozen. Thirty-seven percent of the Class of 2022 are women and 93 percent are international.

During their undergraduate years, 40 percent of HEC Paris MBA candidates had studied business/commerce/economics/management. Engineering followed at 31 percent. Seven percent each had majored in social/political sciences or history/humanities/languages. Five percent pursued computer science and another 4 percent sciences/biology/medicine. Three percent came from an undergraduate law background.

The new MBA candidates matriculated at an average age of 30 with an average of six years of work experience. When it came time to take the GMAT, HEC’s Class of 2022 averaged a score of 690.
