Three HEC Montréal students, members of GERAD, have been chosen to take part in the NSERC–CREATE Program on Machine Learning in Quantitative Finance and Business Analytics (Fin-ML FONCER).
- Audrey Leduc, MSc in gestion – business intelligence, supervised by Denis Larocque
- Rémi Galarneau-Vincent, PhD in administration – financial engineering, supervised by Geneviève Gauthier
The scholarships are worth $17,500 for the Master’s students and $20,000 for the PhD students, and include at least $10,000 in remuneration for an industrial internship of about 12 weeks.
This multidisciplinary program aims to form a new generation of finance professionals to meet modelling and implementation needs and challenges in the Canadian quantitative financial industry, and to facilitate students’ integration into the job market.
Students are selected through competitions at six universities: HEC Montréal, Université de Montréal, Concordia University, University of Waterloo, Queen’s University and University of Calgary.
