The HEC Montréal École des dirigeants (ED) executive education school ranks 61st in the world for its programs open to all executives and managers, according to the 2019 Financial Times (FT) Executive Education Open-Enrolment Programmes Ranking.
The ranking takes many criteria into account in evaluating programs, the main ones being teaching quality, course design, quality and relevance of new skills and learning, and teaching methods and materials.
The data used for this ranking are compiled using data from course providers and several thousand individuals who completed the program in 2018.
“Just like its membership in UNICON, the global consortium for university-based executive education, the fact that the ED has now earned a place on the FT list confirms its standing as a world leader in this field,” says ED Director and Adjunct Professor Serge Lafrance.
Note that the École des dirigeants has been recognized for its expertise in executive education for over 60 years. It offers more than 90 short programs in all fields of management, as well as customized training for businesses. The ED is also considered a key player in Montréal’s support ecosystem for high-tech entrepreneurs, thanks to its Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) and NextAI programs.
