The University Competitions Service is actively involved in organizing competitions and preparing students for them.
During these activities, more than 60 coaches (professors, teachers, employees and graduates) and 400 volunteer experts, mainly from HEC Montréal’s large family of graduates, are involved in supporting the development of students’ skills.
Why not join our team – let’s reach for excellence together!
“I learned about the Jeux du Commerce (JDC) from speakers at HEC Montréal who had already taken part. The JDC had an aura to it! I also knew we were going to meet specialists in different areas, and this would help improve our skills.”
“Through these competitions, I was able to develop other reflexes that are already useful to me, and this involvement enabled me to meet even more nice people, like Valérie whom I had already coached. When her CV came across my desk [at my company], I said to myself: she’s brilliant, we should give her an interview!”
“What particularly attracted me to the JDC was the sense of belonging to a team, a community, a delegation. Then, during the competition itself, there was that whole aspect of encouraging and being there for others. I had imagined in advance it was going to be like that, but not to the extent I experienced when I actually got there.”
“Ninety percent of my attachment to HEC Montréal and everything I’ve learned has come to me directly through the competitions and committees. It gives you a sense of belonging. It’s tattooed on my heart.”
“We were privileged to have former students judging our cases, and to get feedback and advice on how to improve. Some of these people volunteer their time a few months after completing their studies, others a few years afterwards. In my opinion, having them there is essential. There are people who helped me personally, and they have first-hand experience of the competitions.”
“There are all kinds of things that make you feel very attached to the JDC, like yelling ‘OOH HEC!’ and also the parade and face painting.”
“I can’t think of more euphoric moments than university competitions…. They shaped who I am, and I wouldn’t be who I am if I hadn’t gone to HEC Montréal.”
