HEC Paris, ranked #3 worldwide for Executive Education and #1 for International Executive MBA by the Financial Times in 2019, honoured its International Executive MBA (EMBA), Specialized Master in Strategic Business Unit Management (SBUM), and Specialized Master in Strategic Business Unit Management – Financial Regulation graduating classes of 2019 during a ceremony recently held at The St. Regis Hotel Doha.
This year’s graduating classes included 31 Executive MBA, 80 Specialized Master in Strategic Business Unit Management and 16 Financial Regulation programme participants.
