Graduation Day:a worldly party with international allure
Every year more than 450 students worldwide successfully complete their MBA or DBA programme at Business School Netherlands. This we celebrate during our festive annual Graduation Ceremony in the historic Kurhaus in Scheveningen (the Netherlands)
In September our MBA and DBA graduates from all around the world come together in the Kurhaus to receive the coveted MBA or DBA degree certificate; a spectacular international event full of inspiring speeches, unforgettable photo opportunities, typical Dutch ‘bitterballen’ and a phenomenal dinner dance in the magnificent Kurhauszaal.
During the ceremony, special attention is given to the student with the highest average mark obtained for all assignments. Alumni who have acquired a proven track record in practising Action Learning and lifelong learning are also given extra attention by being awarded the Q-plus or Q-gold certificate.
In the run-up to our Graduation we ask several graduates about their highlights during their MBA study at Business School Netherlands, but also about what they expect from this happy day, the so called icing on the cake.
