The EMBA McGill HEC Montreal creates a new scholarship for Indigenous people

The EMBA McGill – HEC Montreal is launching a scholarship program aimed at Canada’s Indigenous population.  Each year, a manager of Indigenous origin will be chosen to receive a $40,000 scholarship.  The selection will be based on merit. The McGill – HEC Montreal EMBA program looks for individuals with different but complementary profiles. The diversity of candidates within each cohort is essential to the learning approach of the program. The Indigenous Peoples scholarship will help to further enrich this diversity. Since its launch in 2008, the McGill HEC Montreal EMBA program has welcomed a number of managers of Indigenous origin such as Ken Rock (EMBA 2013) and Raphael Picard (EMBA 2014). “These participants bring a different vision and a unique experience to the classroom. Since diversity of experience and perspective is one of our key values, a scholarship encouraging Indigenous participation will be a real plus” says Professor Alain Pinsonneault, co-director of the EMBA HEC Montreal McGill. Raphael Picard, President of Consultant Innus and current EMBA participant agrees wholeheartedly: “I learned a tremendous amount during the EMBA.  It was a great way to update myself, especially through the learnings from my classmates.  I’ve gained a whole new perspective on development”. Comment faire une demande de bourse? Nous encourageons les cadres, gestionnaires de niveaux intermédiaires ou supérieurs, professionnels et entrepreneurs des peuples autochtones du Canada à présenter une demande d’admission au programme EMBA McGill  HEC Montréal avant le 1er juin 2014. Le comité de sélection examinera chaque candidature en prenant plusieurs facteurs en considération, entre autres : Le leadership; La curiosité intellectuelle et les habiletés de réflexion L’obtention d’un diplôme de premier cycle; Une expérience de travail d’au moins 10 ans, dont 5 ans à un poste [...]

Une sixième cohorte très diversifiée pour l’EMBA McGill HEC Montréal

In French Only C’est avec beaucoup d’enthousiasme et de fierté que l’EMBA McGill HEC Montréal a accueilli les 35 gestionnaires d’expérience qui composent sa sixième cohorte le 10 septembre dernier. Trois mois plus tard, alors qu’ils prennent part au troisième module du programme, l’équipe est fière de vous les présenter. Chaque année, le programme se renouvelle en tâchant de toujours réduire la distance entre la classe et la réalité d’affaires des participants du programme. Le programme doit être pertinent et aider les participants à avoir l’impact qu’ils désirent avoir dans leur milieu. Louis Hébert, co-directeur de l’EMBA et professeur à HEC Montréal décrit cette nouvelle cohorte : « Chaque année, nous désirons obtenir la meilleure cohorte possible, la meilleure distribution et je crois vraiment que nous avons, pour une sixième fois, atteint cet objectif. Pour nous, la meilleure distribution signifie une cohorte composée de gestionnaires qui ont une expérience variée, une grande passion et qui désirent avoir un réel impact dans leurs entreprises. Ils ont tous quelque chose à apporter au groupe et sont ouverts à apprendre les uns des autres malgré leurs parcours très différents.» Alain Pinsonneault, co-directeur de l’EMBA et professeur à l’université McGill ajoute : «Comme nous croyons fermement  en l’apprentissage basé sur les expériences, environ 50% de ce qui est assimilé par les participants au cours des 15 mois du programme provient d’échanges entre eux. Lors de la sélection des participants de cette cohorte, comme des précédentes, nous avons donc accordé beaucoup d’importance à la diversité des participants pour qu’ils puissent apprendre davantage de leurs différences.» Lors de leur rentré, les participants de la cohorte de 2015 ont rencontré le parrain de leur cohorte, le professeur Laurent Lapierre, auteur renommé et expert en [...]
