HEC Montréal’s Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) team placed 3rd at the annual Business Ethics Competition, hosted by the Toronto-based Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University, on the 15th and 16th of November.
The School’s team consisted of Jeanne Boilard, Noémie Keime, Pascale Laframboise and Valérie Tremblay. Their coaches were Kaileigh Hamilton-Browne and Jean-François St-Pierre.
The laureates were awarded a cash prize of $2,000.
The case assigned to them this year dealt a company that had been awarded a major contract for water treatment systems destined for use by Canadian First Nation communities. The team’s mandate was to guide the approach of an employee who had become aware of a defect in some of the manufactured products.
The Ted Rogers Ethical Leadership Case Competition is Canada’s largest business ethics student competition. The event allows students to demonstrate their understanding of the concept of leadership, from the perspective of socially and environmentally responsible businesses.
