Where opportunities are created

Portrait of Federico Pasin, Director of HEC Montréal

It is in a spirit of continuity that we have developed the new 2024-2027 Strategic Plan. These past years have demonstrated to what extent our mission—to train management leaders who make a responsible contribution to the success of organizations and to the sustainable transition of society by drawing on our excellence in teaching and research—is firmly rooted and our community is agile, resilient, and engaged.

With a clear vision and values that define us, our 2020-2023 Strategic Plan proved to be an invaluable guide through the many challenges we faced in these atypical years. Our many significant achievements over these four years convinced us to stay the course and further refine our areas of action.

The 2024-2027 Strategic Plan continues to steer us toward our true north, the common objective we all share—to draw on our entrepreneurial culture to provide an enriching experience throughout each student’s academic journey and contribute to the advancement of management knowledge.

Three themes guide our actions:

  • Enhance our impact on society
  • Enrich the student experience
  • Cultivate an open and stimulating environment

We have reorganized the previous strategic priorities with greater precision and direct alignment with the School’s mission or vision.

The concept of priority projects used to implement the 2020-2023 Strategic Plan was not carried over to the 2024-2027 plan. Going forward, implementation will be supported by the action plans of each office and its progress will be monitored through a management system.

I am fully confident that the 2024-2027 Strategic Plan will contribute to making HEC Montréal a business school that is ever more attuned to the needs of society, continues to strive for excellence, centres the interests of learners in its actions, and enhances its impact on society.

I am proud of our School and our accomplishments, and I fully believe we can go even further, aided by your great competence, unwavering commitment, and sustained collaboration.

The Director


Federico Pasin
