The International Finance program from HEC Paris aims to fulfill two objectives within a short period of time: lay the necessary foundations for any career in finance and provide in-depth knowledge in each student’s field of specialization.

Visit the official programme website for more information


We achieve this goal by leveraging on the specific knowledge and experience students have acquired before joining International Finance program from HEC Paris  

  • Business track students: have already taken at least introductory level courses in financial accounting, corporate finance, financial markets, derivatives and statistics in a Tier-1 international business school or university. They frequently have had first internships in banking or consulting and are looking for an advanced set of tools to jump-start their career.
  • Accelerated track students: have received first class education in a highly quantitative field (maths, physics, engineering, econometrics...) and wish to switch their field to finance. They may or may not have taken some courses in finance and they may or may not have had a first internship in banking or consulting.

Business and accelerated tracks mainly differ in courses taught during the Fall term.
