HEC Montréal takes third place at the Symposium GRH

November 22, 2019

The HEC Montréal delegation finished in 3rd place overall at the Symposium GRH, held at Faculté des Sciences de l’Administration of the Université Laval, in Quebec City, from November 15 to 17.

The Symposium GRH is the largest university competition in Eastern Canada focusing on human resources management.

The event, bringing together this year nine universities and more than 350 students, consisted of four parts: academic, sports, immersion and contribution.

This year, the contribution part highlighted support for an environmental cause.

In the immersion part, the teams had to contribute to the smooth running of the competition, and organize activities aimed at socializing, relaxing and entertaining the participants.
