research hec Research at HEC Paris In a context of global competition, research is a key factor to build up the credibility of a business school. Academic reputation is indeed largely determined by the quality of the knowledge developed by faculty. Business schools having the best reputation attract the finest minds, i.e. both the best students and the best faculty. In this global battle to attract the best talent, HEC has earned an established position which has translated into international rankings. In January 2013, the Financial Times ranked HEC research 5 th in Europe (comparatively, in 2002, HEC research ranked 17th in Europe). This leapfrog has been made possible through significant investments HEC has made with the support of the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the HEC Foundation, as well as a continuous effort to recruit researchers coming from the best universities worldwide. HEC's research policy is based on close collaboration with France's top research institution CNRS: the GREGHEC, joint research unit between HEC and CNRS, based on the HEC campus, comprises five CNRS researchers and some HEC faculty. This allows greater visibility for HEC in the French academic community and easier access to national research funds. In 2009, France's evaluation agency for higher education and research (AERES) has granted GREGHEC A+ grade, which is the highest distinction possible. ing secure remote access to data) through which HEC collaborates with ENSAE, Ecole Polytechnique, ENS Cachan, GIS Network Quete¬let, and INSEE.
