A dedicated Doha-based international academic and programme-delivery team anchors the programme’s excellence and delivery consistency. The HEC Executive MBA in Doha is a practical and intense course that provides executives with an understanding of the social, economic and environmental aspects of international business, as well as the skills to put their vision into action.

Our focus on leadership and the global business environment ensures our participants gain comprehensive, innovative and applicable knowledge and skills. In keeping with HEC’s motto, “The more you know, the more you dare,” our goal is not only to strengthen the technical expertise and leadership skills of future global leaders, but also to enable them to dare to implement innovative solutions.

The HEC Executive MBA is delivered across 18 months of study. Flexible formats are designed for a senior executive’s schedule. During the programme, participants are exposed to state-of-the-art management knowledge through original and engaging learning activities.

Conducted in Doha, Paris, Beijing, Shanghai and St Petersburg, the HEC Executive MBA allows participants to remain in their home track throughout the programme, or take classes in different locations.

The HEC Executive MBA curriculum is made up of three key components: core courses, majors and two capstone projects, allowing participants to apply key learnings.

The majors are designed to allow participants to develop special competence in a particular area. Participants may choose from eight majors: Global Business Perspectives, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Aerospace and Aviation, Energy, Luxury, Digital Business and Telecoms, Services, and Reinventing Business for Emerging Markets.

The Executive MBA is being held in Doha in the context of HEC Paris’s partnership with Qatar Foundation.
