HEC Montréal MBA Makes the Forbes Top 10

Only Canadian school in the top one-year program ranking

August 5, 2009

For the fourth straight time, the HEC Montréal Intensive MBA has ranked as one of the top non-US MBAs in the prestigious Forbes biennial listing of business schools. The survey ranks schools based on return on investment – meaning compensation five years after graduation minus tuition and the forgone salary during school.

“We are especially proud that our MBA has once again been ranked among the best programs outside the United States,” says Program Director Jacques Roy. “Employers continue to put their faith in the new crop of managers trained by our School, because we are constantly seeking ways of innovating and adapting our teaching methods and content to the changing needs of the business world.”

This year, some 17,000 2004 alumni from 103 institutions around the world completed the Forbes questionnaire for this survey. With one of the top non-US MBA programs, HEC Montréal joins a select group of international schools:

1. Insead – France
2. IMD – Switzerland
3. Instituto de Empresa – Spain
4. Cambridge (Judge) – United Kingdom
5. Oxford (Saïd) – United Kingdom
6. City University (Cass) – United Kingdom
7. Lancaster – United Kingdom
8. SDA Bocconi – Italy
9. Cranfield – United Kingdom
10. HEC Montréal – Canada

The details of the Forbes ranking are published on-line on the magazine’s Website, www.forbes.com/bschools. The printed copy will be on newsstands this week.
