Mazars becomes a part of the HEC foundation

Founded in 1881, HEC Paris specializes in education and research in management sciences. As a leading academic institution in Europe and worldwide, HEC Paris offers a complete and unique range of education programs for students and leaders.

HEC Paris has a permanent faculty of 109 professors, 4000 students, -40% of whom are international, and over 8000 managers in executive education programs every year.

Mazars and HEC have enjoyed a close relationship initially under the direction of Mazars founder, Robert Mazars (HEC 43).The Group Mazars has always chosen to recruit high level profiles to become future partners and we consider HEC to be a key stakeholder in our recruitment approach.

Over 300 young graduates have started their career in this way in France or in one of the 61 Mazars countries. Today, there are over 50 HEC alumni, 20 of which are partners in France or worldwide. A large majority are already individually members of the HEC foundation.

Being part of the HEC foundation is therefore a logical way forward expressing our shared values: to foster social diversity, to be a global player renowned for technical excellence, innovative approach and research initiatives. This partnership should also reinforce the link between Mazars and the student population.

« The HEC foundation is a strong commitment to maintain HEC’s position as an international leader with European roots on the educational market. and we are proud to take part in this adventure » Hervé Hélias and Jean Paul Stevenard, Mazars partners (HEC 86).
