Students participate as a pair, being placed with two other pairs to form a new team of 6 participants for each challenge.
Challenges cover different aspects of business, including strategy, digitalization, marketing, or finance.
In addition to the competition, participants benefit from multiple opportunities to connect with world-leading firms and to socialize with peers from all over the world.

The HEC Business Game will provide you with a real sense of how to tackle everyday problems, and it is a unique experience that promises to leave you with a lifetime of memories.
This is also the perfect opportunity to connect with top firms. If you impress them, you will probably see them again!
