Throughout its 125 years of history, HEC School of Management has continually attracted a special kind of individual highly capable and talented, innovative, entrepreneurial, ambitious and open minded. HEC ‘s aim is to train the world leaders of tomorrow.
HEC scholarships fall into various categories: merit-based, need-based, based on a combination of merit and need, or based on specific criteria, as in the case of the Forté Scholarship or the Alcatel Scholarship. Since each HEC MBA Scholarship is different, we advise applicants to launch the application process as early as possible. In some cases, an essay is required.
To be eligible for the scholarships, admitted candidates must supply details about their financial status and how they intend to finance their studies over the duration of the 16-month HEC MBA Program. All scholarship applications are initially completed online. For some scholarships, applicants may be required to attend an interview.
