MSc student Valérie Grenier-Paquette was part of the winning team at the 2014 McKinsey Challenge, held on November 21 and 22 in Montreal.
The annual competition, organized by the McKinsey & Company international consulting firm, brought together six teams of 24 bachelor’s and master’s students from HEC Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal, the Université de Montréal, and Concordia and McGill universities.
The participants were challenged to solve a concrete problem similar to those faced by consultants. Candidates are selected through a rigorous process. They must have excellent academic records and proven leadership qualities, and be keen to have a positive impact on their environment.
Valérie won the competition with Melik Bouhadra and Chloé Beaudry, of Polytechnique Montréal, and Oliver Babin, of McGill University. Each student of the winning team is eligible for an analyst internship position.
Congratulations to them all!
The winning team: Melik Bouhadra, Chloé Beaudry, Valérie Grenier-Paquette and Oliver Babin.
