Dual Degree MPA-MBA with HEC Paris

The MBA-MPA focuses mid-career professionals who have been working in the public or the private sectors. It lasts 2 years: the first year at HEC Paris and the second at Sciences Po, or the way around.

This dual degree programme provides students with the opportunity to develop their leadership and management capabilities while equipping them with advanced policy analysis skills in order to develop a strategic vision. Thanks to their detailed knowledge of both the public and the private sectors, graduates embark on careers at the interface between those sectors and to fully apprehend the issues of regulation.

HEC Paris is one of the best business Schools in Europe.


The full programme lasts 2 years. Students spend their first year (instead of 18 months) at HEC and their second year at Sciences Po.

  • For more information about the MPA programme, please refer to the dedicated page.
  • Detailed information about the MBA programme can be found on HEC’s website.


Candidates must already be enrolled in the MBA programme at HEC in order to apply for the dual degree. At the end of the year spent at HEC, admitted students complete the entire one-year MPA program, at the end of which they earn their dual degree.
