USEK Business School

HEC Montréal


For years, HEC Montréal has maintained a strong partnership with the USEK Business School (UBS) by providing institutional support through activities such as training of trainers’ programs, teaching material development, and collaboration at conferences and seminars.

This partnership is enriched with two programs to serve our students better:

  • The Graduate Diploma in Business Administration at the Master level combined with the USEK MBA in Management and International Affairs, granting our students a double degree.
