Executive Master

Executive MSc in Finance

Lead and optimize the financial performance of your company

The recent financial crisis has shown how costly it can be for corporations to allow too large a knowledge gap to develop between banking professionals and finance executives. Our objective was to bridge this gap by developing a program with a strong focus on corporate finance that provides insights into how finance strategies and negotiation techniques can be used to foster competitive advantage and create shareholder value.

World-class teaching by HEC Paris faculty, including leading researchers and high level investment bankers

Content that has been specifically designed to address the major issues encountered by senior finance professionals

Exposure to leading finance and banking practitioners

Access to the influential HEC Paris Alumni network




The only way to permanently change the temperature in the room is to reset the thermostat. In the same way, the only way to change your level of financial success 'permanently' is to reset your financial thermostat. But it is your choice whether you choose to change.” 

— T. Harv Eker



The aim of the program is to enable you to:

Acquire a more in-depth understanding of advanced finance topics and trends

Enhance quantitative skills and negotiation techniques through hands-on problem solving

Develop global perspectives and boost networking opportunities

One aspect of this program, and perhaps a non financial side of it, was the negotiation strategies. People in finance are not just financiers, they also need to think strategically about finance."
