HEC Montréal - Executive MBA

The McGill-HEC Montréal Executive MBA Program Structure

The McGill-HEC Montréal Executive MBA program is a joint 45-credit, 15-month, bilingual program with classes held at both the McGill University Desautelts Faculty of Management and HEC Montréal campuses. Classes are held four times per month from Thursday through Sunday for the first 11 months, with the schedule starting in September. No classes are held in July. Two and half weeks of residential modules are included in the total nine EMBA modules.


The first nine modules of the McGill-HEC Montréal Executive MBA take place over the nine months, in addition to a two-and-a-half residency. The school notes that the nine modules fit in to the “broad” educational categories of: business challenges; managerial tools and techniques; and managerial mindsets.

The final four months of the program are built for a personal, integrative project of the student’s choosing.
