Founded in 1907, HEC Montreal was Canada’s first business school. Today, HEC Montreal offers more than 40 study programs, some of them bilingual or trilingual (French, English and Spanish). Its distinguishing feature is its international student body with 134 nationalities represented on campus. Real-world, group-based learning in a multicultural cutting edge environment is a centerpiece of the School’s curriculum overhaul. HEC Montreal was the first business school in North America to have gained the “triple crown” of accreditation by the AACSB International, AMBA and EQUIS.
