Cortex, a game developed at HEC Montréal, is a marketing hit

October 24, 2022

Professors Jean-François Plante and Pierre-Majorique Léger have received the Innovator of the Year Award from American software company SAS Institute. Their Cortex game, created in collaboration with the ERPsim Lab team, lets players develop their analytical skills.

Cortex is a simulation game used as a learning tool in data science, and is used in some HEC Montréal courses. Many companies also rely on it to train their teams.

HEC Montréal is an SAS partner, through its ERPsim Lab. The company distributes Cortex worldwide.

SAS held an award ceremony for its business partners for the first time this year, to recognize the products it markets and which are a real success with its customers.
