professional thesis

The professional thesis is an academic work that aims to provide solutions to management issues by drawing on existing knowledge. Its originality lies in the fact that it combines an academic and a professional dimension to address a specific theme or topic. The professional aspect is usually based on your work place.

As this is an essential component of the Specialized Master's Degree, we provide you with the best tools, knowledge, support and expertise from a dedicated tutor.

Your success matters to us; we want to ensure that you submit a high-quality piece of work and benefit from this challenging experience.

 

A tutor, an HEC Paris Professor and / or a recognized Expert, supervises your thesis throughout its 4 development stages:
