Over 350 students from HEC Paris business school have visited banks and other global companies based in London this autumn aiming to strengthen ties with the UK job market.

The students met with top business and recruitment leaders, discovered diverse working environments, and networked with relevant industry professionals.

Company visits included Amazon, Barclays, Credit Suisse, Danone, BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, SociétéGénérale, HSBC, Morgan Stanley, Santander, Unilever, and Vodafone.

Despite recent turmoil, London was the destination of choice for students, ahead of New York and Berlin, with the City remaining attractive to those wanting to work in finance.

Raphaelle Gauthier, Executive Director of Partnerships and Careers at HEC Paris, says:

“The elements which make London great as a recruitment hub are unlikely to change as a result of the EU referendum, not least because there are an estimated 3,000 French firms in Britain, which employ nearly 400,000 people, and the ties between Britain and France are historic and significant.

“These ties go a long way to explaining the success of HEC Paris students’ study trips and the reason why students from Masters programmes, as well as from the MBA, continue to see London as an excellent destination for their next career step.”

Students studying on the MSc International Finance, MSc Strategic Management, and MSc Financial Economics were all involved in the trips to London.
