management case competition
of Eastern Canada

Discovering and experiencing project management
The Concours KGP is an interuniversity case competition in the field of project management. It is looking to involve undergraduate and graduate students at the master level in a rewarding opportunity to discover and experience this dynamic field of study. By the extend of their expertise, but mostly of their soft skills, the participants will need to solve a case with particular challenges that are experienced by project management professionals. In doing so, they will need to present their solution of the case to project management professionals here in Montreal. For its 9th edition, the organizing committee will work tirelessly in order to make everyone taking part in the Concours KGP shine through this wonderful learning experience.
With the PMI Montreal (Project Management Institute) as our official collaborator, the Concours KGP is the largest project management competition in Eastern Canada. It certainly is the event not to be missed this fall.
