Bernard-André Parent Foundation award
The HEC Foundation awards showcase outstanding works in management science and honor creators of value.
This year, a new award has been created: the Bernard-André Parent Foundation Award.
The prize(s) from this Bernard-André Parent Foundation are intended to reward the best student thesis/es whose subject matter discusses the idea that worldwide geographical data (agricultural resources, mineral resources, demographics or climate conditions, etc.) determines the choice of all economic activity, and that in order to grow, or even to survive, businesses must therefore opt for agile management by integrating these forms of data (and their interlinks) almost in real time.
Selection of works:
The persons in charge of each program will make a pre-selection (Ge/MS/MSc, MBA, EMBA or EMS). Do not hesitate to share with the HEC Foundation (firstname.lastname@example.org) your interest in the subject of study proposed by the BAP Foundation hosted by the HEC Foundation.
