Myself and everyone I know had an amazing time. There is so much to see and do both in Montreal and within reasonable travelling distance. Exchange students are really well catered for.

Personal comments
Montreal is bilingual (French/English). So I had the opportunity to practice my English a lot (with local people, my housemates, etc.) even if HEC Montreal is a french-speaking business school. This said HEC do offer some of the courses in Engkish and in Spanish also.

Personal comments
Housing around campus gets easy to find around June or July, but before that be prepared to be charged a higher rate. If you could wait, wait until the summer to secure housing.
