Almost 200 graduates from the Executive Education and MBA programmes turned up this weekend to celebrate the successful completion of their EDHEC degree course.
Accompanied by their friends, family and colleagues, the graduates celebrated the end of their EDHEC programme in a setting that was both moving and festive, simultaneously becoming members of the extended EDHEC Business School Alumni network.
The day was marked by a number of events:
· The formal event with the official degree award ceremony
· The social event as the new graduates met up again with the people who had shaped their time at EDHEC;
· Festive events, when we discovered the diverse facets and talents of the EDHEC community.
The award ceremony was attended by almost 200 graduates from the different EDHEC Executive programmes: the Global MBA (Nice), Executive MBA (Lille-Paris), Advanced Management Programme (Paris) and Cycle Supérieur de Management (Lille-Paris-Nice).
"The award ceremony marks the end of a journey full of new ideas, experiences and encounters. It’s an important step that paves the way for new career opportunities. You can be proud of your degree and your course programme which will be major advantages in all your projects in the future. The values of innovation, making a positive impact on the world and collective engagement that we strive to pass on will also help guide you in your future choices, whether personal or professional." Olivier Oger, Dean of EDHEC Business School, told the audience in his introduction.
The traditional throwing of mortarboards and group photo was followed by drinks and a buffet.
