MONTREAL, Feb. 23, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - HEC Montréal is the only Quebec university, and one of two in Canada, to feature in the international ranking by Expansión. The prestigious Mexican magazine publishes an annual list of different MBA programs around the world, ranked according to a number of criteria: students' average GMAT score, the number of research projects carried out by the institution, faculty composition, graduates' salaries, the presence of foreign students, the international scope of the program and its positioning in the Mexican market.
"We are very proud to have made this list for the third straight year. This ranking certainly helps to make our program better known and respected. Expansión is a highly regarded publication in Latin America, and this will boost the School's profile throughout the region, at a time when we are looking to increase the proportion of international students and attract them from a wider variety of places," says MBA Program Director Michael Wybo.

HEC Montréal's intensive MBA program has been recognized in many international rankings, including those issued by Forbes, Bloomberg Businessweek, AméricaEconomía, Poets & Quants and The Economist.
