Students from 13 countries in the PhD program

September 27, 2012

This year HEC Montréal is proud to welcome 22 students from 13 countries to its PhD in Administration program, adding to the School’s strong international character.

“Close to 60% of the students in this new cohort are international students or permanent residents. It adds a valuable cultural aspect to the program,” emphasizes Program Director Alain d'Astous. “This international dimension has always been very important to us, since it gives the School considerable exposure. In fact, many of our graduates have gone on to careers at other universities around the globe.”

The PhD in Administration, created in 1975, is offered by HEC Montréal jointly with Concordia and McGill universities and the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). Its bilingual nature and its scope make it the only program of its kind in North America. Students have access to a pool of some 400 professors, 260 of them at HEC Montréal. With 153 students out of a total of about 450 enrolled at the moment, HEC Montréal accounts for more than 35% of all students in the program. In February 2012, HEC Montréal awarded its 250th PhD degree.
