Victory at the Symposium GRH

November 17, 2021

The HEC Montréal delegation took first place overall at the Symposium GRH, held at the Université du Québec en Outaouais from November 12 to 14.

The human resources management (HRM) competition, attended by over 300 students, was organized by the Regroupement étudiant des facultés d'administration de l'Est du Canada, representing management students from across eastern Canada.

“This superb victory is due to the hard work of all the students in the delegation, the HEC Montréal competitions committee, the coaches and the practice judges who so generously shared their advice with the teams,” says a proud Anne Bourhis, Academic Director of the University Competitions Department and Professor in the HRM Department.


On the podium

In addition to taking 1st place for participation, the HEC Montréal students turned in particularly strong performances in a number of events:

What’s more, the School’s two teams faced off in the finals of the sports event, taking the top 2 places in the badminton tournament.

All in all, 24 Bachelor’s in Business Administration (BBA) students from HEC Montréal took part in the competition, accompanied by 8 coaches.
