Many have already started out on professional life, others plan to continue their studies in pursuit of their career aims, while some have opted to serve humanitarian projects for several months…
On 2 and 3 June, 1,283 new graduates celebrated the end of their courses on the Lille campus in a highly-emotional and joyous atmosphere, during an event that also marked their entry into EDHEC Business School’s extensive alumni community. Over 4,155 people accompanied them.
The day was organised around several important moments:
- Solemn moments, including the official graduation ceremony;
- Convivial moments, allowing students to converse with those who played important roles in their studies;
- Fun moments, designed to enable participants to discover the EDHEC community’s different facets and talents;
All in all, no less than 4 graduation ceremonies took place on the Lille campus, for the Lille BBA, executive programmes, the Master in Financial Economics and the European Apprenticeship Track, and the Master Business Management, respectively. Nice BBA graduates received their degrees back in April.
"The graduation ceremony marks the culmination of an important chapter in your life and opens the door wide to your future. You can be proud of your degree and training, both of which are important assets for building your future. The values of innovation, positive impact on the world and collective engagement that we have striven to transmit to you, will also serve to guide you throughout your lives." underlined Olivier Oger, Honorary Dean of EDHEC Business School, during the introduction.
The traditional mortar-board tossing and group photo were followed by a cocktail reception.
