    It was ranked #1 for my course. The structure of the course is very flexible and the strategic management subject is ranked highest in Europe. It was a short path to entering the business world because MBA requires work ex, and MiM doesn't.

    Course Curriculum :

    It's great. The flexibility and freedom to choose subjects and select electives is what attracted me the most. The fcaulty is world class and the interaction with th real business world through conferences and talks is amazing.

    I came to know about the university through a google search. It was ranked among the top 10 business universities in Canada. One of the reasons for choosing this college was its multilingual approach. They provide 3 paths: French, bilingual and trilingual. Most of the colleges are very much persistent with languages but here I had the option to choose the language that I understand the best. Secondly, the 12-month MBA programs are cheaper than most of the other business universities in North America. Also, the MBA program is only a 1-year course, not for 2 years like other universities. So I get to save a year. I applied on the official website and paid $270 for the application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    The MBA full-time course in a one-year intensive program and in one year they feed us with enough knowledge to stand out in a professional career. This MBA program allows us to reach our career goals in just 1 year, with all the same benefits as the2 years program.

    I opted for this college as it has the third-best MBA program in the whole of Canada. The course is also for only one year which I like because I will not have to invest too much time. The MBA program in this university has a 91% placement rate which means most people will easily find a job after graduating from the program. I applied through the admission portal of the college website, I also paid an amount of $270 as the application fee.

    When I actually started contemplating applying for an MBA, I was an IT Professional with an experience of 5 years. I had lost track of college education and learning over the period I was working. Hence, I focused on institutes I could easily get into without compromising on the quality of education. My idea was to complete the course as quickly as possible. Under my colleague's guidance, I tracked HEC Montreal offering a year MBA with an added bonus of french environment. Having studied French in high school, my instincts got way out of me to apply to the college without a second thought.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course required around 40 hours of credit score to complete the course. I studied an up to date curriculum. While studying the course I was able to get practical analytics and risk management knowledge. I also tried to gain an appreciation for ethical behavior in business
