The HEC Montréal MBA Makes Forbes Best Business School Ranking for the Third Time

    MONTREAL, Aug. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - The HEC Montréal MBA has made it into
the Forbes biennial ranking of the top non-US MBAs for the third straight
time. The detailed results will be published in the next issue of the
prestigious magazine, due out this week.
    The ranking is based on the return on investment for graduates, five
years after earning their MBA. This year, Forbes sent questionnaires to 18,500
year 2002 graduates from 102 schools around the world.
    "Since 2003, our MBA has done very well not only in the Forbes
international ranking, but also in the last two biennial BusinessWeek lists,
in 2004 and 2006," notes MBA Director Jean Talbot. "Not to mention that it
also made the Which MBA? guide published by The Economist in 2006. We are very
proud of our international standing, proof of our constant efforts to maintain
our leadership."
    In this year's ranking of the top non-US programs, Forbes made a
distinction between one- and two-year programs for the first time.
    As rated by Forbes, the HEC Montréal MBA shares the international
spotlight with the one-year programs offered by the following schools, by

    - Canada: Queen's
    - Spain: Instituto de Empresa
    - France: INSEAD
    - Italy: SDA Bocconi
    - United Kingdom: Cambridge, City University (Cass), Cranfield,
      Lancaster, Oxford (Said)
    - Switzerland: IMD
