On Monday, November 28, GERAD was visited by some 60 students from Père Marquette secondary school (Rosemont). It was an opportunity for them to discover and demystify the daily lives of researchers and the problems they are working on. They attended activities on modeling, the use of mathematics as a generic methodology applicable to a wide variety of problems and applications, such as environmental modeling or management. The role of the computer in research has not been forgotten. Thanks to Eglantine Camby, Laurie Cloutier, Annie Levasseur, Edoh Logo and Catherine Poissant for animating these sessions.

The Master of Science in Administration Program Office of HEC Montréal had listed 17 students whose outstanding marks earned them a place on the program’s winter and summer 2015 Honour Roll! Every term, the students who achieve the highest GPA in their specialization, after completing at least 15 credits, are listed on the Honour Roll.

Four scholarships of $3000 each respectively will be attributed to:

  • Stéphane Jacquet, sponsored by Charles Audet and Gilles Caporossi;
  • Geoffroy Chevalier, sponsored by Jérôme Le Ny andRoland Malhamé;
  • Vilmar de Sousa, sponsored by Miguel F. Anjos and Sébastien Le Digabel;
  • Amal Feriani, sponsored by Georges Zaccour.

Pléiade Capital is the first initiative in venture capital in Quebec built by students for students.
