HEC Montréal Goes Global

  • International exchange program: spending an entire term abroad is possible with the B.B.A. program. This extensive program, which involves 112 partners from universities and major business schools in 37 countries, can make all the difference.
  • An active presence in over 40 countries, which give students an opportunity to design and carry out research projects abroad, or in Canada for the benefit of the school’s international partners. We also train business managers and directors in various organizations around the world.
  • If you’re an international student studying at HEC Montréal, take advantage of the services offered at the International Student Affairs office. For students considering enrolling at HEC Montréal, the school’s European office in Paris can be a good starting point.
  • Campus Abroad in China, Brazil and the United States: spend a term abroad as part of the B.B.A. or MBA program. By far, the best way to discover and gain a better understanding of a market is to experience it first-hand by meeting with local business managers and company directors.


Campus Life

Buildings as prominent as the faculties they house

The greater HEC Montréal campus includes the Decelles Building, and the Côte-Sainte-Catherine Building.

The unique architecture of the Côte-Sainte-Catherine Building is the work of renowned architect Dan S. Hanganu. To better understand student needs while designing the building, Mr. Hanganu discreetly observed them in the 3rd-floor study areas of the Decelles Building. This covert practice would inspire the Côte-Sainte-Catherine Building’s study areas, which are bathed in natural light. In 2001, this project was honoured with an award of excellence from the Ordre des architectes du Québec. Click here for more details about the challenges faced by the architect.


Walking the talk: focusing on sustainable development

  • A true pioneer, HEC Montréal has been offering courses on sustainable development for over 15 years, long before “sustainable” became a buzzword
  • In 2006, HEC Montréal launched the first graduate diploma program (D.E.S.S.) in Management and Sustainable Development.
  • More recently, the school signed an agreement with Mobiligo as a way of playing an active role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions generated in the borough.
  • In 2008, the school’s campus officially earned “sustainable campus” status.

An ideal setting

Spread out over parts of Mount Royal, mere minutes from St. Joseph’s Oratory, the campus is easy to reach and only a stone’s throw away from both the Université de Montréal and Côte-des-Neiges metro stations.

HEC Montréal’s campus is the perfect place to experience unforgettable student life or, for those of you already on the job market, to take upgrading classes. Located in the Côte-des-Neiges district only minutes from Outremont, you’ll have access to a warm, friendly environment. Whether in the vicinity of the Decelles or Côte-Sainte-Catherine buildings, the neighbourhood is rife with opportunities to experience true urban vitality. Everything is within walking distance, from small businesses – grocery stores, cafés, restaurants, banks and drugstores – to major facilities like the Université de Montréal sports complex (CEPSUM) or Sainte-Justine Hospital.
