February 01, 2012
The date was the 17th January 2012 and a happy day for many people. It was winter graduation day for our WMG MSc students and a memorable occasion signifying and acknowledging the hard work that our students have put in over the past year in achieving their MSc. I remember my graduation day. It was a great day, full of satisfaction, relief and accomplishment. It felt so good to have the hard work and experience of my degree celebrated and I remember thinking that although studying was hard work, I'd do it all again for my graduation day.
I'm sure that many of our graduating students also enjoyed their 'moment in the sun'. It really is such a great feeling to have achieved a Masters degree and be walking away with that certificate from the University of Warwick to show to future employers!
I was able to talk to a number of students on the evening of the 17th when I joined in the celebrations for graduation and felt 'buzz' in the atmosphere between graduates, happy parents and proud tutors and lecturers.
I was able to speak to some of our graduates to hear what some of them have been up to since completing their Masters in September. Many of them have gone onto to find great jobs in big companies such as IBM in Bangkok, The Motorsport Industry Association, Icona Solutions and Matcon Group Ltd to name but a few. Others are going onto do PhDs and some have been busy setting up their own business! The Management focus of our MSc's really does help elevate students into senior positions after graduation. We will soon have some of the success stories added to our current Alumni profiles page for you to read about and you can see pictures from the evening on our website now.
If you attended the WMG graduation day recently, tell us about it!
