Desautels Faculty of Management – McGill University - Executive MBA
The McGill-HEC Montréal Executive MBA Program Structure
The McGill-HEC Montréal Executive MBA program is a joint 15-month, the 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 of nine EMBA modules.
The first nine modules take place over nine months, in addition to a two-and-a-half residency. The school notes that the nine modules fit into 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.
