Oxford Saïd-HEC Montréal Scholarship


These scholarships are generously funded by University of Oxford and HEC Montréal alumnus Jean Chagnon.

Jean Chagnon is a University of Oxford alumnus who completed a MPhil Management Studies in 1973. Jean subsequently served as the Chief Executive Officer and President of Lallemand for 34 years. Now a member of the company’s board of directors, Jean continues to serve as a Senior Vice-President and special adviser to the company.

As an alumnus of both Oxford and HEC Montréal, Jean established this scholarship to give others the same opportunity he himself has benefited from. This Scholarship therefore offers a graduate of HEC Montréal a chance to attend a postgraduate programme at Oxford Saïd. A partnered scholarship at HEC Montréal will enable a graduate of Oxford University to attend a postgraduate programme at HEC Montréal.
