HEC Montreal Summer School: Innovation, Sustainability and Creative Economy

HEC Montreal's Department of International Business offers a two-week Summer School Programme with both an undergraduate and a graduate level from 9 to 20 July 2012. The programme, developed in collaboration with the Carmelle and Rémi Marcoux Chair in Arts Management, offers insightful teaching and practical experience in core areas for arts management students: innovation, sustainability, and the creative economy.

Undergraduate and graduate students from business schools around the world are invited to participate in cutting-edge academic programs taking place simultaneously at HEC Montreal, one of the best multicultural business schools in Quebec and Canada.

The two-week programmes are designed to give participants a privileged space for discussions and reflection on fundamental tools and content regarding knowledge creation and knowledge sharing, sustainability development values and drivers, and cultural and social innovation. The programmes are intended for two distinctive study levels: one group for graduate students and one for undergraduate students. Although both programmes are based on the same themes, the pedagogical approach and content are adapted to best suit the needs of students from these two study levels. In addition, most of the academic material and business cases applied in the courses come from the Montreal experience, a world renowned know-how hub for innovative industries such as multimedia, gaming, arts, circus and cultural events. Montreal is also a city in which many sustainable and social projects are put forward.
