Strategic Planning

A brief description of the institution’s featured program, initiative, or accomplishment:

In 2019, HEC Montréal conducted a broad consultation of its community to rethink its mission, its actions, and its priorities. Sustainability has been emerging as a priority for the school – HEC Montréal cannot be a spectator of the challenges our society is facing. Consequently, in 2020 HEC Montréal changed its mission, and is now engaged in educating its students so they become responsible managers and leaders who will participate to the sustainable development of our society. By 2021, HEC Montréal will unveil new initiatives the school has been working on and that will permanently change the way we teach students, we conduct research and we participate to solving modern and future social challenges.
