Accompanied by family and friends, the graduates celebrated the end of their training at EDHEC in a highly-emotional and joyous atmosphere that marked their entry into the extensive EDHEC Business School Alumni community.

All in all, over 200 graduates of the different EDHEC Executive Education programmes - Global MBA (Nice), Executive MBA (Lille-Paris), Advanced Management Programme (Paris) and Management Development Programme (Lille-Paris) – congregated on the Lille campus to be honoured and to celebrate the end of their studies in May.  

Nothing is more precious and important than learning, remaining open to new knowledge, keeping contact with rewarding people and continuing to learn", Emmanuel Métais, Dean of EDHEC Business School.

For those close to them, it was a moment of pride and emotion. Parents, friends, acquaintances, and also professors and members of the EDHEC administrative team were there to celebrate their success.

The event comprised various moments that differed in tone:

  • Formal moments, including the official graduation ceremony;
  • Convivial moments, shared between students and those who played important roles in their studies;
  • Fun moments, designed to enable participants to discover the EDHEC community’s different facets and talents;

EDHEC ALUMNI FOR LIFE

The new graduates joined the EDHEC Alumni community and its network of more than 40,000 members in 125 countries.

"The most important aspect is the journey you’ve made, in other words all the effort you’ve put in, everything you’ve learned from your professors and classmates, and everything you’ve learned about yourself. This journey equips you well to take up the ambitious challenges awaiting in your future life. Nothing is more precious and important than learning, remaining open to new knowledge, keeping contact with rewarding people and continuing to learn", underlined Emmanuel Métais, Dean of EDHEC Business School.

The traditional mortar-board tossing and group photo were followed by a cocktail reception.
