Julien Desgagné

Strategist Special Projects

Julien, special projects manager at the FPHEC, firmly believes in learning through experiences. This explains why he nurtured his interest for finance through an acute involvement in the FPHEC at the start of his bachelor’s degree at HEC Montreal.

Driven and hungry to learn, Julien decides to transform his university experience into a cooperative program. During his first two years at HEC, he has the opportunity to participate into an international exchange program (National University of Singapore) and to complete different internships:

  • Summer 2017 : Investment Banking Summer Analyst, Barclays - Toronto
  • Winter 2017 : Winter Business Analyst, McKinsey & Company - Montreal
  • Autumn 2016 : Project Collaborator, Rabaska Ventures / Rabaska Partners - Montreal
  • Winter & Summer 2016 : Investment Banking Analyst, Canaccord Genuity - Montreal
  • Summer 2015 : Summer Analyst, National Bank Financial (Asset Allocation, Investment Banking and S&T) - Montreal

Since his time at the FPHEC has been a life-changing experience, he wishes to give back to the association and to its members. Thus, he will maintain his implication in the FPHEC through coaching, administration of the fund and completion of special projects.

Julien anticipates to graduate from HEC Montreal in May 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration specialized in Finance (honor). He also plans to enroll in the CFA program. Following his graduation, Julien will be joining McKinsey & Company as a Business Analyst.
