The Graduating Class of 2017

HEC Paris MBA Graduation 2017

As with every commencement day that takes place at HEC Paris, Saturday, June 10, 2017 was filled with many moments of wonder and grace. Amid the pomp of grandiose speeches and soaring violin serenades, our 184 students came together one last time to share congratulations, hugs and their incredibly joyful smiles.

To the HEC Paris MBA Class of 2017, you who hail from 57 different countries, we will miss you. In the words of Andrea Masini, Associate Dean of the HEC Paris MBA, “We hope that you wake up each day with the sense that something wonderful is about to happen. It is an honor and a privilege to have witnessed your transformation.”

Goodbye and good luck, everyone!
