115 international upGrad students celebrated at LJMU

115 students from India, Canada and Lebanon have been on campus this week as part of a three-day immersion week of celebrations with Liverpool Business School. 

The students who have completed a Master of Business Administration (MBA) online with upGrad, ended their week at LJMU with a certificate presentation ceremony, at an event in the Student Life Building. 

The graduates, who have spent the last three years studying on the MBA upGrad course, were invited to take part in the immersion week, with sessions on working in partnerships, sustainable supply chain management, and global leadership. Students were also split into groups to produce an impact poster, with the winners announced at the celebration event.  

Sanjay Dara, 26 from Hyderabad, India said:

“The whole MBA programme, from the online learning to today, has been such an enjoyable experience. I’ve learnt so much and I’m looking forward to using what I’ve learnt to focus on specialising in HR, and the next step of my career.”  

Professor Phil Vickerman, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Student Experience and Michael Aiello, Postgraduate and Academic Staff Lead attended the presentation to congratulate the students on their success and completion of their MBA. 

Mike Aiello, Postgraduate and Academic Staff Lead, opened the event and congratulated the students: 

“Thank you for taking the time to take part in this immersive week, we’ve been struck by the hard work of all our students over the past three days and it’s been a real pleasure working with you all. You’ve committed to yourselves, your career and your futures by being here. Congratulations and well done.”  

Professor Phil Vickerman said:

“It’s great to see over 100 students graduate from our MBA upGrad programme today. The three days here at LJMU have highlighted the importance of lifelong learning and the global legacy these students now have with LJMU. It’s been a real celebration of their achievements as they courageously move on to the next chapter.” 

The Master of Business Administration upGrad programme at LJMU takes on four cohorts per year.
