HEC Montréal's International Advisory Board announces a partnership with the MBA program and a new scholarship provided by BMO

MONTREAL, Nov. 22, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - As part of HEC Montréal's International Advisory Board (IAB) annual meeting, a partnership agreement was signed by all Board members aimed at offering HEC Montréal's MBA students unique learning opportunities that will result in case competitions, meetings with senior executives and a special career management program developed in collaboration with the Board's member organizations. Reciprocally, the goal of this partnership is to support the recruitment and talent management efforts of member organizations by giving them access to HEC Montréal's top students and graduates.

United Technologies Corporation (UTC) will be the first main partner under this arrangement, for a two-year maximum, after which another Board member will take over. In addition to activities conducted by the main partner, the Board's member organizations will be asked to offer MBA students supervised in-house projects, enabling participating organizations to observe future candidates in real work situations.

BMO Scholarship
The awarding of an encouragement scholarship to a student in HEC Montréal's trilingual bachelor's program in business administration was also announced by Jacques Ménard, Chairman of BMO Nesbitt Burns and President of BMO Financial Group - Québec, during the IAB meeting. This $5,000 scholarship will be awarded annually to a candidate who shows an excellent command of the program's three languages (French, English and Spanish) and who has an outstanding academic record. The 2011 recipient is Lina Quillan, a student in the trilingual program.

"Since its inception in 1993, the International Advisory Board has advised and supported the School in its internationalization efforts," says HEC Montréal Director Michel Patry. "Meetings of this Board are what led in 2005 to the trilingual bachelor's program, unique in North America, which attracts 350 students from around the world each year. We feel fortunate to be able to rely on the input of these executives from various fields and their tangible contribution to HEC Montréal's international profile and the enrichment of the course of our students who are considering a career abroad."
