Congratulations to all our graduands
Business School Graduation 2010 – a message from the Dean
Warmest congratulations to all our graduands. This is the culmination of years of hard work and study - a time to celebrate with your friends and family.
I hope that you will see this as a beginning, not an end. You’ve finished your studies and are starting out on the rest of your life. We have tried to help you as much as we can – helping to develop you as people as well as students.
You’re about to choose where life will take you next, whether that’s to a job, further study, or another activity; I hope you’ll be able to use not only the knowledge and the skills but also the values that you have gained during your time here in Exeter.
We hope you intend to retain an interest in your university and be proud of its present and future accomplishments. We want to stay in touch with our alumni, many of whom take an active interest in the Business School’s progress and development. As you will have seen during your time here, we have ambitious plans for the future and a brand new building to look forward to. It is the School’s intention to hold an opening party for the new building in the Spring of 2011, to which you will all be invited. This will be a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and observe the development of the School first-hand. Our reputation will be important to you, and we shall do our very best to make sure that it grows constantly in value.
Whatever you are doing after today, I wish you the best of luck for the future. I hope that your studies will enable you to get where you want to go - to enjoy the personal satisfaction of achieving a lifelong goal or ambition.
Thank you for your contribution to the life of the Business School. On behalf of all my colleagues, I can say that it has been a great pleasure having you here and we take enormous pride in your achievements.
Enjoy your day.
