Mathematics workshops I, II and III

Is your mathematics knowledge sufficient to let you pass all the courses in the certificate program? 

Mathematics is a key component of several certificate courses. You need a good grounding in mathematics for most courses in the following disciplines: accounting, economics, finance, operations and production management, logistics and all quantitative methods courses. 

HEC Montréal offers workshop to upgrade your mathematics knowledge. Whether you are going back to school after spending time in the workforce or if this subject was never your forte, mastering the concepts in these workshops is indispensable if you wish to obtain your certificate easily. 

We recommend that you try to solve the exercises and problems in the self-diagnostic test before you register for mathematics workshops I, II, and III.

These workshops are intended for both newly admitted and returning students.  


You can register for the workshops via HEC en ligne. Each workshop costs as much as a 1-credit course. It is possible to take three workshops in a single semester because each workshop lasts five weeks. To find out the workshop schedule, do a course search (Recherche de cours) on HEC en ligne. All the mathmatics workshop are offer in french.
