Association des agences de communication créative
HEC Montréal’s Diplôme d’études supérieures spécialisées en communication marketing (specialized graduate diploma in marketing and communications) was created in 2000 thanks to efforts by the A2C, HEC Montréal, and various stakeholders in Quebec’s communication industry.

 

This unique program allows young professionals to take a look at contemporary issues in the marketing and communications industry and to get real answers to their questions. Students team up with marketing professionals to find new ways of overcoming challenges that affect a sector that’s changing at a rapid rate.

 

 

To date, almost 350 young professionals have received a diploma and, thanks to their unique expertise, will benefit an entire industry. The A2C is proud to have financially supported this program since its inception.
