King’s Business School’s 327-strong undergraduate class of 2020 received their degrees today in special online ceremonies.
Professor Stephen Bach, Executive Dean of King’s Business School commented: “I am always proud of our students’ achievements in academic life and their contributions to the life of King’s and to the wider community. But we will remember the class of 2020 in particular for the way that they have risen to the personal and academic challenges of the last few months, discovering resilience and emotional intelligence that they perhaps did not know they had.”
45 of today’s graduates were the first cohort to complete the Business School’s BSc in International Management, a four year multidisciplinary programme including a year abroad spent working in business or studying at a partner university in Asia, Europe or North America.The programme explores the role of business in different country contexts and from different academic perspectives with the aim of equipping students to navigate a complex and uncertain global world.
Professor Stephen Bach added: “we owe a special debt of thanks to the graduates of our International programme who have been very generous with their time and thought to help make the programme what it is today. They have impressed us throughout in the persistence and creativity they showed in the face of the logistical challenges that come with studying and working around the world.Their perspectives and future ambitions also helped us to expand the choice of partner universities for the programme, something that future students will benefit from. I am excited to see the directions their careers will take”
