The Master of Science in Administration is offered with a thesis or supervised project stream – the project may be carried out within an organization or at the university. Both streams are excellent ways to open the door to a promising career in the management field. Our graduates’ skills are in great demand on the market. Which stream you choose is a matter of personal preference. It is up to you to decide on the stream that best reflects your interests and to find a supervised project, within an organization or at the university. Before starting to look for your project, you should consult M Sc. Supervised projects: Guidelines and Requirements, drawn up by your program administration.
For all questions about administrative procedures, contact your option head or the Registrar’s office, at 340-6000, ext. 2955
For supervised projects within an organization, students should generally be paid for their work, in the form of wages or a scholarship. This remuneration is agreed upon by the student and the host organization.
The work done for supervised projects at the university may also be remunerated.
Supervised projects in Quebec/Canada: See the pay rates by the Quebec government and the federal Public Service for student jobs and internships as part of study programs:
Supervised projects in Europe: Internships in Europe are unpaid, but a stipend (indemnité) is usually offered (mandatory for internships of 2 months or more). It is important to properly describe your program of studies so as to receive the highest stipend. For more information
-All students – supervised projects in France or elsewhere in Europe:
(civil liability, occupational accidents and illness)
Unpaid supervised projects in Quebec: You must usually provide the organization with proof of civil liability insurance from HEC Montréal. Contact the supervised project co-ordinator (email@example.com) if this applies to you.
Supervised projects outside Quebec: Check your insurance coverage, since the insurance offered by ASEQ at HEC Montréal is generally insufficient. You may have to take out full traveller’s insurance including coverage for occupational accidents and industrial diseases, hospitalization and repatriation. You can obtain more information from the International Students Office (BAEI) on this subject. The School assumes no civil liability for you during your project.
Supervised projects in France: For internships with stipends exceeding 12.5% of the monthly ceiling for social security, the host organization must make contributions to the Caisse Primaire d’Assurance Maladie (CPAM). For stipends of 12.5% or less, the intern must take out insurance covering occupational accidents and industrial diseases. For more information, contact the HEC Bureau international Europe (BIE). In either case, the School assumes no civil liability for you during your project.
Students carrying out unpaid supervised projects abroad may be eligible for a $2,500 scholarship.
