This year, HEC Montréal is delighted to welcome 18 students from 7 countries in its PhD in Administration program, which will soon be celebrating its 300th graduate.
“We are very proud of the School’s significant contribution to educating high-level researchers in all management disciplines,” emphasizes Alain d'Astous, Director of the PhD program. The new cohort, once again made up largely of international students and permanent residents, helps us strengthen our international position.”
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 150 students out of a total of about 450 enrolled at the moment, HEC Montréal offers 45% of the courses in the program. The joint program can already boast over 650 graduates, 295 of them from HEC Montréal, in one of the 10 program specializations. Close to 45% of the graduates are international students or permanent residents, and about three-quarters of program graduates go on to careers at universities around the world.
