HEC Montréal on the podium at the 32ndJeux du Commerce

Second-place finish overall

January 8, 2020

The HEC Montréal delegation turned in a remarkable performance, finishing in 2nd place overall and with a grand total of 13 teams making the podium at the 32nd Jeux du commerce, held from January 2 to 5 at HEC Montréal – the very same place as the first edition of the competition, back in 1989.

A total of 1,300 participants from 13 Canadian universities took part in the different events in the academic, sports and social categories.

The School’s delegation was made up of 80 students in the Bachelor’s in Business Administration (BBA) program, co-ordinated by Béatrice Bernier-Roy and with Professor René Gendreau as head for the academic events.

The students were supported by a coaching team including Audrey Bond, Jérôme Brun-Picard, Stéphanie Leverdier and Jean-François St-Pierre.

The heads of the delegation thanked the hundred or so alumni professionals, professors and friends of the School who came out to support them during their preparations this fall. They also acknowledged the financial support they had received from the Association des diplômés.
