HEC Paris is an international business school established in 1881 and located in Jouy-en-Josas, France. Among the most selective French grandes écoles, HEC Paris offers its flagship Master in Management, MBA and EMBA programs, specialized MSc programs, a PhD program, executive education offerings. HEC Paris has been ranked the best business school in France, among the top in the world. HEC alumni include 12 current CEOs of F500 companies - more than any other business school in the world and third institution only to Harvard and Stanford -, several heads of states and governments, heads of international organizations, other prominent figures in politics and the arts. In 2017, HEC Alumni has been ranked by The Economist as the 2nd most powerful business school alumni network in the world. HEC Paris is the founding member of CEMS - Global Alliance in Management Education and holds the triple accreditation. With ESSEC and ESCP, it forms the informal group referred as the 3 Parisiennes. Established in 1881 by the Paris Chamber of Commerce, the École des hautes études commerciales de Paris wanted to be in the fields of management and trade what Centrale Paris was in the field of engineering.
In order to gain recognition from the academic world, the school offered lessons similar to what was taught in secondary education and few classes in management. In 1921, the school introduced the case-based method of the Harvard Business School, but most of the lectures remained theoretical. In 1938, the HEC program was lengthened to 3 years. Due to French corporations' demand for North American style management education, at the end of the 1950s, the case-based method was generalized and a one-year classe préparatoire was created to prepare for the entrance examination, which had become difficult. An evidence of the recognition of the diploma is that only 9% of HEC students attended university in 1959, whereas 47% had done so in 1929. In 1964, French President Charles de Gaulle inaugurated a new 250-acre wooded campus in Jouy-en-Josas. In 1967, HEC launched its executive education programs. Women have been accepted at HEC since 1973. Only 27 women were accepted that year and HEC jeunes filles, another school dedicated to women, was closed.
Its alumnae are considered as graduates of HEC. HECJF alumni include, for example, Édith Cresson, the first and to date the only woman to have held the office of Prime Minister of France. In 1988, HEC founded the CEMS network with the Bocconi University and the Cologne University. In 2015, the school adopted a new legal status to allow private investors to join the Board. In 2017, HEC launched a portfolio of new dual degree programs called M2M with Yale, HKUST, FGV. French students who attended a classe préparatoire are taught fundamental managerial sciences during their first year at HEC. Courses include economics, finance, psychology and mathematics. During this first year, students can spend a semester in a foreign university, they can enroll in a specific one-year program to get a bachelor's degree from a French university. Direct admissions, including international students, enter directly into the second year, where they begin a business intensive program. Courses include corporate and market finance, marketing, mathematics, human resources, supply chain.
Second-year students are given the opportunity to spend one semester in a foreign university. At the end of their second year, students choose specific majors and must pass through a less competitive application process. In order to graduate, students are required to have 8 months of internships. Since this is difficult during the summer, many students take a semester or year off for their internship between the second and third year; the final year of study covers intensive courses in the chosen major. HEC Paris has numerous double degree agreements with French and foreign institutions, including Sciences Po Paris, ENS Paris, Ecole Polytechnique in France, Yale University, HKUST, FGV abroad; some of them only make degrees of the partner institution available to HEC students, while others enable selected students of the partner institution to graduate from HEC. MSc International Finance MSc Managerial and Financial Economics MSc Strategic Management MSc/MS Marketing MSc Sustainability and Social Innovation The MBA program, created in 1969, has two intakes: September and January.
HEC's MBA consists in a 16 month-long curriculum, with 8 months of core courses and 8 months of customized program, including several specialization options, exchange programs, fieldwork projects. A typical class is composed of some 250 students - 90% of whom are international students - with more than 52 nationalities represented in the 2017 graduating class; the selection process seeks a balance between academic achievement, professional experience, international exposure, personal motivation. Knowledge of French is not an entry requirement, but participants are encouraged to have a basic knowledge of French by the start of the MBA Program, while mandatory and optional language courses are offered throughout the duration of the program. Exchange and dual degree programs are offered with about 40 international partner business schools, including HKUST, London Business School, Columbia Business School and Yale; the HEC Executive MBA is a program for top executives with a minimum of 8 years of corporate experience, which pr
Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark and the seat of Aarhus municipality. It is located on the east coast of the Jutland peninsula, in the geographical centre of Denmark, 187 kilometres northwest of Copenhagen and 289 kilometres north of Hamburg, Germany; the inner urban area contains 273,077 inhabitants and the municipal population is 340,421. Aarhus is the central city in Business Region Aarhus and in the East Jutland metropolitan area, which had a total population of 1.378 million in 2016. The history of Aarhus began as a fortified Viking settlement founded in the 8th century and with the first written records stemming from the bishopric seated here from at least 948; the city was founded on the northern shores of a fjord at a natural harbour and the primary driver of growth was for centuries seaborne trade in agricultural products. Market town privileges were granted in 1441, but growth stagnated in the 17th century as the city suffered blockades and bombardments during the Swedish Wars.
In the 19th century it was occupied twice by German troops during the Schleswig Wars but avoided destruction. As the industrial revolution took hold, the city grew to become the second-largest in the country by the 20th century. Today, Aarhus is at the cultural and economic core of the region and the largest centre for trade and industry in Jutland; the city ranks as the 92nd largest city in the European Union, as number 234 among world cities. It is a top 100 conference city in the world. Aarhus is the principal industrial port of the country in terms of container handling and an important trade hub in Kattegat. Major Danish companies have based their headquarters here and people commute for work and leisure from a wide area in Region Midtjylland, it is a centre for research and education in the Nordic countries and home to Aarhus University, Scandinavia's largest university, including Aarhus University Hospital and INCUBA Science Park. Being the Danish city with the youngest demographics, with 48,482 inhabitants aged under 18, Aarhus is the second fastest growing Danish city, with an average growth of 4,500 people per annum since 2008.
Aarhus is known for its musical history. In the 1950s, many jazz clubs sprang up around the city, fuelled by the young population. By the 1960s, the music scene diversified into rock and other genres. In the 1970s and 1980s, Aarhus became the centre for Denmark's rock music, fostering many iconic bands such as Kliché, TV-2 and Gnags. Aarhus is home to the annual eight-day Aarhus International Jazz Festival, the SPoT Festival, the NorthSide Festival. In 2017, Aarhus was European Capital of Culture along with Paphos in Cyprus. In Valdemar's Census Book the city was called Arus, in Icelandic it was known as Aros written as Aars, it is a compound of the two words ár, genitive of á, oss. The name originates from the city's location around the mouth of Aarhus Å; the spelling "Aarhus" is first found in 1406 and became the norm in the 17th century. With the Danish spelling reform of 1948, "Aa" was changed to "Å"; some Danish cities resisted the new spelling of their names, notably Aabenraa. Århus city council explicitly embraced the new spelling, as it was thought to enhance an image of progressiveness.
In 2010, the city council voted to change the name from Århus to Aarhus to strengthen the international profile of the city. The renaming came into effect on 1 January 2011. Certain geographically affiliated names have been updated to reflect the name of the city, such as the Aarhus River, changed from Århus Å to Aarhus Å, it is still grammatically correct to write geographical names with the letter Å and local councils are allowed to use the Aa spelling as an alternative. Whichever spelling local authorities choose, most newspapers and public institutions will accept it; some official authorities such as the Danish Language Committee, publisher of the Danish Orthographic Dictionary, still retain Århus as the main name, providing Aarhus as a new, second option, in brackets and some institutions are still using Århus explicitly in their official name, such as the local newsmedia Århus Stiftstidende and the schools Århus Kunstakademi and Århus Statsgymnasium for example. It is notable. "Aa" was used by some major institutions between 1948-2011 as well, such as Aarhus university or the largest local sports club, Aarhus Gymnastikforening, who have never used the "Å"-spelling.
Founded in the early Viking Age, Aarhus is one of the oldest cities in Denmark, along with Ribe and Hedeby. Archaeological evidence under the Aros settlement's defences indicate the site was a town as early as the last quarter of the 8th century earlier than had been supposed. Discoveries after a 2003 archaeological dig unearthed half-buried longhouses, glass pearls and a road dated to the late 700s. Archaeologists have conducted several excavations in the inner city since the 1960s revealing wells, streets and workshops. In the buildings and adjoining archaeological layers, everyday utensils like combs and basic multi-purpose tools from the year 900 have been found; the centre of Aarhus was once a pagan burial site until Aarhus's first church, Holy Trinity Church, a timber structure, was built upon it during the reign of Frode, King of Jutland, around 900. In the 900s an earth rampart for the defence of the early city was constructed, encircling the settlement, much like the defence structures found at Viking ring fortresses elsewhere.
The rampart was
