Campus Montréal receives $3.5 million for research on co-operative business

December 12, 2013

The Desjardins Group has donated $3.5 million to Campus Montréal, a joint fundraising campaign by HEC Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal and Université de Montréal. HEC Montréal will receive the funding for ongoing research on the “co-operative model” of business. “The co-operative model has been attracting growing interest around the world since 2008, since co-operative businesses more easily weathered the crisis. We want to better understand this phenomenon and train the next generation of managers so that they are even better equipped to contribute to our society’s development,” says HEC Montréal Director Michel Patry. Polytechnique Montréal recently received $1 million from Desjardins as part of Campus Montréal. HEC Montréal News Release
