HEC Paris Sees Surge in Entrepreneurs

Twenty five percent of HEC Paris graduates are now entrepreneurs.
HEC Paris found that 25 percent of its graduates are now entrepreneurs, up from 9 percent ten years ago. Twenty percent of young graduates from pre-experience master’s programs and 44 percent of EMBA participants have started businesses. Respondents shared many reasons for wanting to be entrepreneurs, but two predominate: Forty-seven percent wish to be their own bosses, and 25 percent desire to create new businesses.
