The diversity of candidates within each cohort is essential to the learning approach of the program, and the awarding of these scholarships contributes to that diversity.

The EMBA McGill – HEC Montreal offers two types of scholarships:

1. Scholarships for managers working in the non-profit sector

Up to two scholarships are awarded annually, based on need and merit, to individuals working for non-profit organizations. The scholarship has a value of CAD $50,000.

2. Scholarships for managers of indigenous origin

The McGill-HEC Montréal EMBA is awarding up to two CAD $ 50,000 scholarships to managers of indigenous origin to cover part of the program’s tuition fees. The objective is to support managers of indigenous origin in Canada as they pursue their academic and professional journey, but also, to bring different perspectives and experiences to the class.
