A HISTORICAL PROJECT

Executive Education HEC Montréal is proud to contribute to the First Nations Executive Education (FNEE) project, which will offer a number of short programs aimed at First Nations elected officials, administrators, managers and entrepreneurs.

The project initiators and First Nations leaders are working with our teams to develop the programs, making it a truly collaborative and historic undertaking.

The training available through this one-of-a-kind school will be delivered by HEC Montréal teachers working together with First Nations trainers. The workshops are co-created for and by First Nations to converge academic and practical concepts aligned with their realities and their values.

By sharing our expertise spanning the entire management spectrum, we aim to expand the knowledge and broaden the skill sets of the leaders who are driving business growth and taking the value of community organizations and businesses to new heights. The ultimate goal is to stimulate a future-focused economy and contribute to First Nations’ overall prosperity.

We are all pleased to play a role in this innovative project aimed to create a school that meets your needs and reflects your identity.
