Reflections about Commencement 2013

Our Director of Graduate Studies and the NUS-Peking University Double-degree MBA alumni Chua-Nan Sze, Marie Antonie, shares her reflections about Commencement 2013:

Commencement 2013 is just round the corner and it entails a busy and exciting time for all of us at the School. It is, after all, that one time of the year when we all come together, to celebrate the achievements of our students, the support that their families have provided to them and the memories we create together to help our students attain an important milestone of their lives.

The graduating class of 2013 will remain a very special cohort in my life – the first official cohort I welcomed & saw through as Director of the NUS MBA program. I will remember most of the students fondly when I will look through the memories captured in the annual student Yearbook many years later and I look forward to receiving updates about the exciting happenings in these students’ lives through Facebook & LinkedIn.
