Two students receive the Eugène Tassé Scholarship
On May 8th, two graduate students of the Business Administration programs were awarded the Eugène Tassé Scholarship. Both recipients were selected based on their end-of-term project for the Entrepreneurial Culture course which they presented to the selection committee. This committee is composed of Marielle Lafond, professor and coordinator of the Business Administration – Financial Services program, Jean Pigeon, Director of La Cité Foundation, Bertrand Chartrand, professor of the Business Administration programs, and Mathieu Lafleur, graduate of the Business Administration – Financial services program and recipient of the 2012 Eugène Tassé Scholarship.
We wish to congratulate Jessica Chartrand, who received a $3 000 scholarship for placing first, and Bruno Ayikoé, who was awarded a $2 500 scholarship for second place. The recipients were selected based on the quality of their project which needed to demonstrate how, in a concrete manner, they apply the concepts learnt throughout the course to their day-to-day life.
The Eugène Tassé Scholarships were created in 2009 to support students in the Entrepreneurial Culture course as part of the Business Administration program. In fact, Mr. Eugène Tassé hopes to lend a financial hand to students who, much like him, have an ambitious life plan. Starting at a very young age, Mr. Tassé gave himself a mission, as well as precise goals and objectives in order to attain it. Through the years, his business grew and diversified. Today, rich with both knowledge and experience, he encourages younger generations to create their own development plan and strive for financial autonomy.
