Graduation ceremony for the inaugural MBA in Shipping & Logistics programme

Lloyd’s Maritime Academy was delighted to witness the graduation ceremony of MBA in Shipping & Logistics students who have celebrated their completion of the programme in July 2013.

Over 50 students graduated the programme with nearly half of them making the journey to London to see their achievements recognised in a ceremony held at the Hendon Campus of programme accreditor Middlesex University Business School. Presided over by The Rt Hon Lord Sheppard of Didgemere, Chancellor of the University, the ceremony saw students individually collect their scrolls from Anna Kyprianou, Business School Dean, who is also one of the Module Leaders on the programme.

Just some of the students who attended were captured in this group photograph alongside two members of the programme faculty Dr. Stephane Bignoux – Module Tutor (second from left) and Dr Kristian J. Sund – MBA in Shipping & Logistics Programme Leader (second from right).

One of the graduates Tim Rufus, gained his MBA in Shipping & Logistics while working for a UK based company but has since relocated to Shanghai. When asked about his experience Tim said “the industry-specific MBA programme made a lot of sense to me. It looks at ship finance and ship risk management so I learned a lot about my industry alongside more general business management skills. It was absolutely ideal – everything I learnt I was able to implement in practice. I completed the MBA in September and was moved to China to represent my company in April. I’d like to think the two things are related."

Congratulations to all of those who graduated on the 2010 – 2012 MBA in Shipping & Logistics!
