For the fifth straight time, the Intensive MBA has ranked as one of the top non-US MBAs in the prestigious Forbes biennial listing of business schools. The survey ranks schools based on return on investment – meaning compensation five years after graduation minus tuition and the forgone salary during school.
“We are especially proud that our MBA has once again been ranked among the best programs outside the United States,” says Program Director Michael Wybo. “Our School is constantly seeking ways of adapting our teaching to the business realities of a globalized economy. HEC Montréal students can count on an excellent program of exceptional value.”
This year, some 16,000 2006 alumni from about 100 institutions around the world completed the Forbes questionnaire for this survey. The HEC Montréal MBA shares this distinction with programs offered by a select group of international schools.
