HEC Montréal - Fondation HEC

HEC Montréal



Founded in 1907 as Canada’s first university-level business school, HEC Montréal prides itself on being an accelerator of ambition and a springboard for innovation. Over the past century, many of the leaders and entrepreneurs who make a responsible contribution to the success of organizations and to sustainable social development have been trained right here, where future and business meet.

We embrace an international outlook, with multilingual programs that attract learners from 142 countries around the world. HEC Montréal is home to 14,000 students in 100 graduate and undergraduate programs, 9,000 participants in our executive education programs, 314 faculty members and 37 research chairs. The pursuit of excellence is what guides our researchers, who are among some of the most influential and esteemed authorities in their respective fields.

From one year to the next, HEC Montréal makes the lists of the world’s best business schools, and our MBA program can regularly be found in the Canadian top 10 of such prestigious rankings as Bloomberg Businessweek, QS and Forbes.
