HEC Montréal, IÉSEG School of Management and Rabat Business School innovate and launch together the International Triple Bachelor in Business

For several years now, the international opening of business schools and their programs have become essential selection criteria for future students. Thus, they no longer only seek after an academic exchange abroad, but also top-quality academic partners and the opportunity to complete a double or a triple degree.

In order to offer an ever richer multicultural learning experience in an international environment, HEC Montréal, IÉSEG School of Management and Rabat Business School, three prestigious institutions whose excellence is recognized in the best international rankings, have decided to launch together an International Triple Bachelor in Business, which will grant students a triple degree at the end of their studies. It will officially open in September 2024.

This highly demanding program, which is unique in its design in the Higher Education landscape, will allow students to experience their first year of study in Rabat (Morocco), before going to study one year on IÉSEG’s campus in Paris– La Défense, and then complete the remaining 2 years at HEC Montréal. At the end of their program, students will graduate from the three institutions*.

Today, we are taking a crucial step in our international development, with an extremely demanding program. This strong strategic partnership required two years of work to align our three schools’ programs and offer a coherent and truly innovative bachelor’s degree. At the end of this International Triple Bachelor in Business, our students will have acquired the intercultural agility skills sought after by companies.

Olivier APTEL, Dean of Rabat Business School

This unique 240 ECTS program aims to train students in the international business environment. Whether in Marketing, Finance, Accounting, Human Resources, Strategy, Entrepreneurship or even Operations Management, students will follow a general curriculum during the first three years, before specializing in the fourth and final year. A mandatory internship period will also be required.

The International Triple Bachelor in Business is the result of an unprecedented collaboration between our three institutions. We have imagined, built and launched a program on three continents – Africa, Europe and North America – whose journey will culminate in obtaining a globally recognized triple degree. This approach to excellence aims to cultivate the leadership of the next generation of managers in the business world, by promoting their transversal and strategic thinking, while anchoring them in their local environment and connecting them on an international scale. This initiative once again demonstrates our commitment to training leaders who are open to the world and who master both technical and interpersonal skills.

For its first year, the International Triple Bachelor in Business aims to recruit around thirty students and will be open to students of all nationalities, bilingual in French and English.

The International Triple Bachelor in Business is a unique opportunity offered to our future students. Studying in three culturally rich countries will allow everyone to open up, gain maturity and intercultural “soft skills” which are highly sought after nowadays in companies all over the world. In addition, each student will benefit from personalized support and all the necessary help with administrative procedures to offer them the highest quality student experience.
