For the third straight year, the delegation of HEC Montréal Bachelor's in Business Administration (BBA) students took first place overall in the Financial Open Cup, held at the School on February 1 this year. All in all, over 300 students from 10 member institutions of the Students' Association of Management Faculties of Eastern Canada (RÉFAEC) went head to head in this interuniversity competition for students specializing in finance and accounting.
The Financial Open Cup, first held in 2005, consists of six accounting and finance case competitions (Managerial Accounting, Financial Accounting, Market Finance, Corporate Finance, Taxation and Personal Financial Planning), in addition to a stock market simulation and a quiz.
