Entrepreneurship specialization at HEC Paris MBADuring the MBA Entrepreneurship Specialization, students gain the hard and soft skills necessary for founding a successful startup. In this set of Customized Phase courses led by Affiliate Professor Michel Safars, teams of 4 or 5 students collaborate with scientists from the Paris-Saclay Innovation Cluster to bring their inventions to market.

For two intensive months, participants work with mentors to commercialize these scientists’ inventions, learning firsthand what it takes to lead a project from inception to business-plan completion.

The Specialization culminates with a pitch competition in front of a jury of CEOs, venture capitalists and other entrepreneurial experts, who provide the students valuable feedback on the marketability of their ideas.
