About

History

When it was created in 1881, HEC (‘Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales’) was frowned upon. Only a few supporters of economic ‘liberalism’ and a handful of firm believers of progress by education were really convinced. At that time, the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry discards this as a consequence of current sociological and psychological rigidities.
