HEC Paris in Qatar Retains Title as Educational Institute of the Year

HEC Paris, one of the world’s top three providers of Executive Education programs, has retained its title of Educational Institute of the Year after being presented with the Qatar Enterprise Agility Achiever in Education Innovation accolade for the second consecutive year.
HEC Paris in Qatar was recognized during the prestigious award ceremony organized by Entrepreneur MENA and held at the Grand Hyatt Doha to honor leading entrepreneurs, innovators, and companies across the Gulf State. Named ahead of other educational bodies, the business school was praised for continuing to boast the highest levels of excellence in education, and exceeding criteria such as highly-acclaimed educational programs, involvement with Qatar as a nation, promotion of entrepreneurship, bolstering the business through corporate custom programs, and initiatives supporting family business, amongst others.

Its high caliber of graduates was a contributing factor for HEC Paris in Qatar’s nomination, including the recent graduation of Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, who joined the prestigious HEC Paris alumni community last month.

Prof. Nils Plambeck, Dean & CEO of HEC Paris in Qatar, said: “It is an honor for us to have received the Qatar Enterprise Agility Award for the second consecutive year. Receiving such an accolade strengthens and reinforces our team’s efforts in driving a knowledge sharing economy for the benefit of Qatar.”
