At its annual meeting on November 1, the HEC Montréal International Advisory Board (IAB) presented the BMO Financial Group Scholarship to Sergej Lackmann, a student in the trilingual stream of the Bachelor’s in Business Administration (BBA) program. The $5,000 scholarship, created at the annual IAB meeting in 2011, is awarded annually to a candidate who shows excellent proficiency in languages and has an exceptional academic record.
A third-year BBA student (mixed option, Entrepreneurship and Information Technology), Sergej has an exceptional GPA of 4.27 out of 4.3. A true polyglot, he speaks French, English, German, Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian, as well as some basic Mandarin.
The Board was created in 1994, bringing together business leaders, many of them from multinational companies, from six countries. Its mission is to make recommendations to the School on internationalization strategy and to play an important role in strengthening its global networks. The Board is currently chaired by Louis R. Chênevert (HEC 1979), Chairman of the Board and CEO of United Technologies Corporation, in the United States.
