HEC Paris: Approved Courses
The courses listed below have been approved and were taken previously by Stern students studying at the HEC. However you are not limited to taking the courses listed on this page. You should use this page, in additional to HEC’s course listings (see the 'Exchange Program Course Offer' link to a PDF document), to help you prepare a preliminary list and backup list of courses you want to take abroad. Please note: Accounting courses cannot be taken abroad for credit toward the Accounting or CPA majors/concentrations. However, you are allowed to take up to three classes per Concentration at HEC for a total of 6 NYU credits (this is an exception to the maximum of two classes per Concentration allowed at the other IBEX sites).
There is no guarantee that the courses listed here will be offered during the specific semester you study abroad. Once HEC publishes its confirmed courses for the semester you will be attending, you can revise your list as needed based on what is actually being offered. If you see a course on HEC’s website that you would like to take, but it is not listed here, you can submit the syllabus to Stern’s International Exchanges & Special Programs team for approval. If the course is approved you will be notified and it will be added to the list of courses below. If a course is already listed here as approved, it does not need to be reviewed or approved again.
Special note regarding HEC courses: HEC courses will transfer back to NYU Stern as 2 credits each. As a result, students attending HEC should plan on taking between 7-8 classes for a total of 14-16 NYU credits. HEC has both full semester and half-semester courses - as well as special "Skill Seminars". Full semester courses meet for an hour and a half twice a week. Most of their "Elective" courses only last for half a semester and meet once a week for three hours. Some courses will start at the beginning of the semester but end midway through, while others start in the middle of the semester. Skill Seminars (a special kind of discussion-based course with smaller groups of students) are usually held during the weekends.
