A group of 35 students from the Master of Management Control and Organizational Audit of the Institut d’administration des entreprises de Paris (IAE Paris) visited HEC Montréal from March 21 to 25, 2022. Hosted by the CPA International Research Chair in Management Control and the International Activities and Student Mobility Services, the students, accompanied by their professor Marion Soulerot, had the opportunity to discover Quebec and Montreal through the Learning Expedition in Management Control and Organizational Audit program, composed of various seminars and conferences. Although the last visit from IAE Paris was in 2019, this program is offered every year by HEC Montréal. Much to the delight of students, it is being held again this year for a fourth time.
