competed in the very first edition of the Professional Challenge hosted by the Association des étudiants en programme de certificat (AEPC), culminating on March 20.
On the day of the final round, teams were split into 2 sections and presented their solutions to a jury of alumni and competition supporters. The top team in each section then advanced to the finals and made a presentation to a new jury, including the President of DiNapoli, HEC Montréal graduate Taïna Chalifoux (Bachelor’s in Business Administration (BBA), 2013).
The jury selected the winning team, as well as the other three teams that made the podium.
The day of the final round also included a speech by businesswoman Danièle Henkel, who inspired everyone with a personal talk on the theme of life and career transitions.
The School’s inter-university competitions department (SCU) wishes to thank the AEPC team, and especially certificate student Nabila Hajï, co-ordinator of the Challenge. Thanks also go to Célia Barbotte, an SCU employee and BBA student, for logistical support.
Several teachers contributed to the event as mentors for the teams: Anne Bourhis, Fabien Moreno, Pierre Lainey, Charles Baribeault, Miguel Hernandez, Jorge H. Meija and Jean-François St-Pierre.
