Campus US - Course Description

HEC Montréal

Thierry Warin (HEC Montréal and CIRANO (Canada))


The “Campus United States” course will take place in the cities of Washington DC from May 29 to June 2, 2022 and New York from June 2 to 8, 2022. A group of 20 graduate and undergraduate management students will be part of it. The final list of participants will be communicated to you towards the end of February 2022.

The International Campus is an intensive three-credit course offered by the Department of International Business at HEC Montreal. In this course, students learn about a foreign business culture through meetings with senior executives and foreign government officials, academic conferences, as well as hands-on activities aimed at integrating knowledge.

The theme of this campus relates in particular to Global Technological Innovation. Coming to New York and Washington, we will explore the role of US East Coast businesses in the global artificial intelligence revolution, the role of venture capital, the impact on regulations, and consideration of the ethical dimension.

Usually, visits consist in spending roughly 90 min-120 min with the hosts from the institution visited. We often have a tour (contingent on the health situation) then a quick corporate presentation of the organization or the department visited. Then, it is followed by Q&As.

Again, our campus is about Global Technological Innovation and the keywords are: Artificial Intelligence and Data Science in the context of international business, including regulation and ethics. So, this is the background with which students come.

Community values and Honor Code

In this course, you will have access to some of the tools we use on our data science platform in our lab The use of these tools requires adherence to our Honour Code. This comes on top of the school’s regulations [here]

Community Values

It is essential to foster a supportive e-learning environment.

In our lab, we believe it is essential that all participants embody and uphold our community values in order to foster a supportive online learning environment where individuals can have open discussion, reflect on their thinking and learn from each other.

Our laboratory’s Honour Code

A code of honour, ethics and respect.

Our Honour Code complements the Community Values Statement and reflects the commitment of participants as members of the learning community to participate in, foster and sustain the learning model of our laboratory.
