News and events

What's going on?

Saïd Business School, University of Oxford and HEC Paris offer a range of events throughout the year. These events include high profile guest speakers, open days, graduation days and specialist forum events. You can use these as a reason to visit either institution at any point during the application process for Consulting and Coaching for Change.


Information sessions

In- person information sessions are regularly held in Paris. These sessions  provide an opportunity to meet the Academic Director and CCC alumni, who will share their experiences on the program, as well as other future participants. 

If you are unable to attend in person, we also run interactive online information sessions several times a year (see ‘Webinars’)

Visit the CCC Classroom

Class visits during a module can be arranged on an individual basis, following your informational interview.

Upcoming modules:

26 – 30 September (HEC Paris)

For more information or to sign up for any of the above sessions, please contact: Miranda Petersen petersen@hec.fr +33 (0)1 39 67 75 18
