The new participants were greeted by Dr. Nils Plambeck, Dean and CEO, HEC Paris in Qatar, who gave the participants an overview on HEC Paris locally and globally. The Executive MBA Class of 2018, consisting of 13 nationalities of which almost 50% are Qataris and 30% are women, then received an orientation of the program from Matthew Gibb, Director of New International Programming and Academic Partnerships, HEC Paris.
The EMBA participants come from a range of industries and sectors including Education, Health and Social Services, Management Consulting and Banking and 23% of participants are flying in from neighboring countries.
