HEC Montréal is the only business school in North America that offers a French and Business Winter School. Designed for students (undergraduate, graduate, and PhD) as well as professionals, this unique, immersive program does not require special knowledge in French or business.
Program tuition covers the following:
* As the program participants have a beginner, elementary, or pre-intermediate level of French, for obvious reasons of comprehension, these high-level conferences and visits cannot be conducted in French. They will, therefore, be conducted in English so that all participants can enjoy them.
* All these visits will be bilingual, in French and in English. Activities are subject to change.
This course covers basic notions of French grammar. Speak about real situations, read and write short and simple texts, and learn basic management vocabulary in French.
The course teaches participants to speak on familiar topics, understand short and very simple texts on education, work and the immediate environment, write brief notes, and learn and use a wide range of terms in the field of management.
The course allows participants to understand the essential points of an oral or written communication clearly expressed in a common language, to communicate orally on topics familiar with studies, current events, work, and to write simple and coherent texts using, among other things, terms from the field of management.
This course aims at a good mastery of the French language in order to ensure adequate written and oral communications in academic and workplace situations. This linguistic knowledge favors the pursuit of studies and the achievement of professional goals. This course also covers oral and written comprehension of academic and professional discourse, the consolidation of linguistic structures, the acquisition of writing techniques for administrative documents and the enrichment of vocabulary.
IMPORTANT: Is travel insurance mandatory in order to enroll in the French and Business Winter School at HEC Montréal?
YES, it is MANDATORY for each international participant to subscribe to HEC Montréal's health insurance covering illness, hospitalization, and repatriation in the event of a medical emergency. This insurance will be automatically added and invoiced when you register online.
NO: Participants who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada, born outside the province of Quebec, must check the terms and conditions of their health insurance plan in their province of origin, including the terms and conditions of reimbursement in the event of a medical emergency during their stay in Montreal. For a greater piece of mind, it is always possible to acquire additional travel insurance.
