The Executive MBA Program McGill and HEC Montreal launches a scholarship aimed at 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".

How to apply for the scholarship

Executives, senior and mid-level managers, professionals and entrepreneurs of Indigenous origin are encouraged to apply to the McGill-HEC Montréal EMBA program. The selection committee will consider each application, taking into account the following admission criteria:

  • An intellectual curiosity and ability to reflect
  • A capacity for leadership
  • At least 10 years of work experience, including five years in management positions.
  • An undergraduate degree
  • The ability to speak and write in either English or French and to understand and be able to read the other language.
