HEC Paris Leads Health and Well-Being Study

Leading the development of a new generation of intelligent, connected devices, HEC Paris has embarked on a research study directed by Michael Segalla, Professor of Management at the Business School.
TRIUM Executive MBA (EMBA) participants will collaborate with INTEL, which will provide equipment capable of measuring movement, sleeping patterns, pulse rate, blood oxygen level, blood pressure, skin temperature, and galvanic skin response. This unique opportunity started January 2016.

Professor Laoucine Kerbache, Dean and CEO of HEC Paris in Qatar, said: “HEC Paris collaborates, on a regular basis, with various industry experts to keep TRIUM EMBA participants up-to-date with the latest enabling technologies.”

The project methodology is focused on psychological and biomedical measures. It will make way for identifying potentially stressful situations, which contributes to lower personal performance, and measuring the effects of physical activity such as sleep, cardiac function, and stress on physical, psychological, and academic performance. The project will also help examine the methods of integrating wearable technology into daily life. Upon the conclusion of this unique experiment, HEC Paris will release the results.

An alliance of three schools that draws upon distinguished faculty at New York University Stern (NYU Stern) School of Business, London School of Economics (LSE), and HEC Paris, TRIUM enables participants to exchange ideas and knowledge during the resident modules, through collaborative assignments and a capstone project. The alliance creates a powerful network of global relationships destined to last well beyond the completion of the TRIUM program.
