January 28, 2020
Starting in the summer and fall 2020 terms, the Université de Montréal and HEC Montréal will be offering ten new joint bachelor’s degrees, in French, earned by combining certificates. The diplomas will be awarded by the Université de Montréal.
These new degrees, in a variety of disciplines, will allow students to acquire knowledge in management as well as in other areas where managerial skills may be required. The ten possible combinations are:
- business analysis – information technology
- creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship
- direction et leadership
- project management
- logistics and operations management
- IT systems management and security
- international management
- personal financial planning
Each combination consists of two HEC Montréal certificates covering the management aspects, and one certificate or minor from UdeM covering complementary or specific disciplines.
“These programs are flexible and meet needs often expressed by employers in both the private and public sectors,” says Louise Béliveau, Vice-Rector of Student and Academic Affairs at the Université de Montréal. “By combining solid management expertise and a good grounding in fields where this expertise is in demand, the bachelor’s degrees in management offered by HEC Montréal and the UdeM are a winning formula for our student community.”
“With these new bachelor’s degrees in management, we are offering something more closely geared to students’ and employees’ needs and to the evolving labour market,” says Pénélope Codello, Director of Certificate Programs at HEC Montréal. “Students today are looking for flexibility and multidisciplinarity. Employers, for their part, are seeking versatile workers attuned to challenges in their fields. This partnership between the Université de Montréal and HEC Montréal lets us pool our strengths and is in line with the new era of interdisciplinary universities open to the world.”
