AACSB renews its seal of excellence for HEC Montréal

July 12, 2018


For the fourth consecutive time, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) has renewed the AACSB International accreditation granted to HEC Montréal for the overall quality of its university education in management.

The AACSB accreditation has been granted to HEC Montréal for another 5-year period.

This accreditation was originally earned and has been renewed following a rigorous process lasting several years, and including a peer review by other institutions.

Between each renewal, the School is committed to carrying out a plan meeting AACSB standards of excellence in the areas of strategic management and innovation, active participation by students, faculty and professional staff, learning and teaching, and academic and professional engagement.

The AACSB, founded in 1916, is the oldest accreditation organization for business schools. Only 816 institutions worldwide hold AACSB International certification.

HEC Montréal is also one of the rare schools in the world to hold the 3 most prestigious international accreditations in university-level management education. Fewer than 1% of schools around the globe hold AACSB International, AMBA and EQUIS accreditation.
