HEC Montréal offers a full-time one-year MBA (in English or French), a part-time MBA (in French) and an Executive MBA (EMBA McGill-HEC Montréal). The program’s teaching approach centers on teamwork emphasizing the exchange of expertise to actively enhance skills, build experience, and expand networks.

“Organizations can count on HEC Montréal to train informed leaders, well-versed in the major issues facing a constantly evolving world,” Director Michel Patry says. “The school encourages boldness, creativity, and entrepreneurship, but also instills accountability, integrity, and commitment.”

Every student participates in a business consultation project that aims to provide hands-on learning to gain practical experience in the field. Small class size facilitates faculty and student interaction, and every student receives support and coaching from the MBA team and a group of advisers.

The program prides itself on the cultural and professional diversity of its students, which school officials say creates a richer learning experience. As Patry says, “At a time when societies need to reconcile economic growth with environmental protection, to align wealth creation with ethics and social justice, the future belongs to those who develop solutions to the major challenges confronting our planet, view these issues as opportunities for development and progress, and see in today’s world what we can become tomorrow.”

HEC Montréal was the first business school in North America to be awarded the three most prestigious international accreditations in the field of management: AACSB International, EQUIS, and AMBA. Located in Montreal, North America’s most European city, HEC Montréal offers a multilingual and multicultural environment to give students a learning experience that aims to reflect today’s globalized business world.
