“During my studies, I worked with an expert supervisor who is one of the best scholars in our field. I received support in applying for external funding and awards. I worked on different research projects, attended international conferences, and taught various courses. My PhD from HEC Montréal has made me a more confident and capable researcher and teacher.”
