The QTEM – Quantitative Techniques for Economics and Management – network continues to expand worldwide, with some encouraging figures. The 2019 awards ceremony featured several students from HEC Lausanne, University of Lausanne.

For new graduate Chi-Hung Patrice Lê, “the QTEM is an international network that brings academic excellence and the world of work together around quantitative methods. Thanks to the network, I have been able to further my knowledge of econometrics by working with QTEM international students as part of the QTEM Data Challenge. Both exchanges have also helped me to develop my interpersonal skills, as well as travelling.”
