On November 17, we joined together to celebrate our audacious and accomplished alumni!

The inaugural edition of Gala Luminescence, a new and highly anticipated event for the whole HEC Montréal community, shone the spotlight on alumni who are making a difference here at home and around the world. More than a simple awards presentation, and truly international in scope with a series of virtual panels, discussions and workshops, the event brought alumni, students and partners together to mark the HEC Montréal Alumni Association’s 100th anniversary!
