HEC Montréal announces the free online courses for this spring on EDUlib today.
The EDUlib concept – free, accessible knowledge for everyone – represents a way for HEC Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal and the Université de Montréal to reach a broad audience and share the knowledge they already provide for their students from Quebec, elsewhere in Canada and around the world.
The course entitled L’esprit entrepreneurial will be given starting March 28 by Professors Luis Cisneros and Franck Barès, of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Department, assisted by Marie-Ange Masson, the Co-ordinator of the Rémi Marcoux Entrepreneurial Track at HEC Montréal. This introduction to entrepreneurship is designed to help participants understand their own profiles and develop entrepreneurial behaviour, skills and reflexes.
Starting May 16, Réussir son démarrage d’entreprise, given by Claude Ananou, Full-time Lecturer with the Management Department, will look at the practical aspects of the different steps involved in starting a successful business. It is intended for anyone, with or without experience, interested in taking this daring step.
In addition, Introduction au marketing, taught by Professors Johanne Brunet and Yannik St-James, of the Marketing Department, will continue to be offered on an ongoing basis. Students can sign up anytime, and take the course at their own pace.
Lastly, Gestion des conflits is another ongoing course. Given by Jean Poitras, Full Professor with the Human Resources Management Department, it presents an analytical and response model to help defuse organizational conflicts, with a number of specific strategies.
Anyone can enrol for free at www.edulib.org, starting immediately. The website also outlines the objectives of the courses offered and profiles the professors giving them.
