Club des Ambassadeurs

“We can do even more for students, so they can develop their skills in a much more creative environment. Our donation is our way of supporting an active approach to teaching that keeps getting better and better.”

Jean Talbot (HEC Montréal 1974) and Marie-Hélène Jobin

The Club des Ambassadeurs was created in 2011 to help HEC Montréal rise to the next level. It is made up of 36 faculty and staff members, all of whom are committed to upholding a proud tradition of excellence in research and education.

Our ambassadors believe in HEC Montréal’s mission and help bring it to life every day. They have unique insight into the issues related to developing a world-class institution of higher learning and have a front-row seat to the multifaceted impacts of the progress made toward this goal. Their individual commitment: to donate $50,000 or more over a 10-year horizon.

An even greater impact for our community


The generosity of our donors makes it possible to make a wider range of digital tools available to students, improve our study facilities and enhance library resources.


Donations have a ripple effect that helps spark innovation and foster the transfer of knowledge to real-world applications. They contribute directly to grooming a new generation of experts and in spreading information outside of academic circles.


Regardless of the type of scholarship, these contributions change lives by opening up new academic pathways, fostering advances in research, cultivating entrepreneurship projects and enabling students to take part in international competitions and exchanges.


The new HEC Montréal building in the heart of downtown Montreal will be a hub of expertise and interaction with the business community. The location will make it easier to connect with executives and professionals, encourage the transfer of knowledge and spur joint innovation with the School’s partners. This initiative will have a positive impact on students, the business community and Quebec society as a whole.
