Launch of the Stikeman Elliott - Executive Education HEC Montréal mini-MBA
SEPTEMBER 2016 - Stikeman Elliott is proud to announce the launch of an exclusive partnership with Executive Education HEC Montréal to create the Stikeman Elliott - Executive Education HEC Montréal mini-MBA. This executive education curriculum draws from the educational approach developed by the HEC Montréal MBA and the McGill-HEC Montréal Executive MBA. The first and only one of its kind in the Québec legal community, this program will be offered to about fifteen Stikeman Elliott lawyers, enabling them to enhance their business and finance acumen while developing leadership abilities.
This innovative program was developed specifically to meet the needs of the firm and its clients, in collaboration with recognized experts at HEC Montréal. "We are honored to collaborate with Executive Education HEC Montréal to empower our lawyers to become strategic business advisors who can better serve our clients," says Stikeman Elliott's Montréal office Managing Partner, André Roy.
The Stikeman Elliott - Executive Education HEC Montréal mini-MBA will give its participants a real-world, practical understanding of the commercial issues faced by clients, by covering topics including elements of macroeconomics, negotiation skills, accounting and finance. "This initiative demonstrates the firm's investment in its people while also furthering the depth of the firm's business expertise," continues Mr. Roy.
By providing executive education to Stikeman Elliott associates, this unique program is yet another example of the firm's long-term vision and its position as leader in Canadian business law.
