About Executive Education HEC Montréal

HEC Montréal
In the Heart of Dowtown Montreal

This year, Executive Education HEC Montréal will be operating out of our new campus in the vibrant heart of the city’s central business district. Our offices on De La Gauchetière Street West will be even better suited to interacting with our learners, catering to your needs and delivering an outstanding level of service. Not only that, but you will be able to make the most of the many activities and amenities this part of the city is known for.

Executive Education HEC Montréal is committed to training business leaders who, by contributing to the success of their own organizations, drive lasting economic growth for society as a whole. We will continue to work toward this objective from our new locale with the same determination and passion, bringing you high-quality, contemporary programs attuned to ever-changing market demands. It is this dedication to excellence that earned us the top spot for Quebec in the 2023 Financial Times Executive Education rankings.

On behalf of our 300 instructors and the professionals who support them, I thank you for believing in us. I hope that this catalogue for 2023–2024 proves to be an invaluable source of ideas and inspiration.

We look forward to seeing you in our new downtown home!
