MBA, MSc and PhD graduates were welcomed into the alumni community at an exclusive Graduation Reception at the Sheraton Grand Hotel earlier this week.

The class of 2017 graduates join a network of over 15,000 Business School alumni located around the world. It’s a community of real value and a cornerstone of the School’s aspirations for partnership working and lifelong learning.

The Alumni Team, supported by staff from across the School, were there to congratulate all the graduates on achieving their degrees.

The Business School Dean, Professor Wendy Loretto, presented the Academic Excellence Award certificates to the winners from each programme.

She also presented the Trelawney Burgoyne Memorial Prize, in memory of alumnus Trelawney Burgoyne (MBA 2010) to MBA graduate Steve Hand.

All graduates received a welcome gift from the Alumni Team which includes a ‘Connecting with our Global Alumni Network’ toolkit. This explains how they can connect with others across the network and access their exclusive alumni benefits.

They also received a copy of the Business School’s relaunched alumni magazine, Aluminate, published the same week.
