HEC Montréal bags 2nd place at the 2022 Financial Open

February 9, 2022

The HEC Montréal student delegation performed impressively during the 2022 Financial Open on February 4 and 5, finishing 2nd overall. Not only did it excel in several events, but it also stood out for its exemplary attitude in the competition.

Incidentally, this quality earned the delegation 1st place for professionalism, a commendation that the Organizing Committee of the event decided to award for its overall performance throughout the weekend.

In yet another acknowledgement of the qualities of our delegation, its co-ordinator, Maya Furrier, was named co-ordinator of the year.

The Financial Open is the largest inter-university competition in finance and accounting in Canada. This year, it was organized by UQAM’s School of Management (ESG UQAM). Around 350 participants from 10 universities took part in this event.
