HEC Montréal has advanced by 12 positions in one year, to the 47th position in the 2014 Global Employability Ranking by the Emerging (France) and Trendence (Germany) consulting firms. Only three other Canadian universities made the top 50 in this list, published in the International New York Times on December 8, 2014.
About 4,500 experienced recruiters and senior international executives in 20 countries* were consulted between June and October 2014 to produce this unique and complete ranking of today’s universities on the basis of their graduates’ employability. The qualitative study accompanying the ranking shows that the employability of a university’s graduates is the most important criterion in the eyes of international recruiters, much more than an institution’s reputation or international image.
