“The reputation of the McGill-HEC Montréal EMBA program certainly helped in terms of me being considered for this role, and the EMBA network – both alumni and faculty – were a great support to me during the recruitment process.”
Nicolas Fortin, a 2016 McGill-HEC Montréal EMBA alumnus, recently accepted the position of CEO of Particle Dynamics. Particle Dynamics is an innovative global leader in particle processing technologies and finished dose manufacturing, providing a wide range of products and services to the nutraceutical, consumer health, OTC, and pharmaceutical sectors.

“Leading a US-based company which is part of a Private Equity Portfolio brings its own set of challenges and opportunities. For example, I always have to keep in mind that the growth of the company is the top priority for investors. During the EMBA program, I learned a lot about the keys to successful leadership that I am now able to implement. The Value Creation, Analytical Mindset and Collaborative Mindset modules were the most impactful for me.”
