At its annual meeting on October 22, the HEC Montréal International Advisory Board (IAB) saluted the excellence of Julien Robert, a student in the Trilingual BBA program, by awarding him the BMO Financial Group scholarship. This award has been presented annually since 2011 to a candidate who shows outstanding language proficiency and has an exceptional academic record.
Julien is a third-year student in the Trilingual BBA (joint option: Management Sciences/Information Technologies), with a remarkable GPA of 4.13 out of 4.3. He recently returned from an exchange program at the Universidad de San Andrés, in Buenos Aires, made the 2014-2015 Honour Roll for his program and has received four citations of excellence since starting his BBA. He is also actively involved in student life, including as Vice-President, Consulting, of the Club de consultation en management.
After completing his studies, in addition to teaching part-time, he hopes to work in operational research and business intelligence and to play an important role in optimal decision making within a company, as a consultant or by piloting a global solutions strategy.
