Fervent readers of this blog will have noticed the relatively long silence from yours truly – no good excuses really, but here I am, back with news from York, where this year’s graduation saw the second batch of the Master of Leading Innovation and Change graduating in the absolutely impressive setting of the York Minster. More than 40 graduates from Robert Kennedy College have attended this year’s graduation, from all over the world, and have been cheered on by hundreds in attendance as their dreams to have a Master’s degree have come true.

Seeing all of you walk on that platform and shaking hands with the Vice Chancellor of York St John University, Professor David Fleming, I was getting goose bumps: such an accomplishment for you, but equally for us, and boy are we proud of you. Let me say that again. We are immensely proud of all of you, and to be honest I am already rubbing my hands in anticipation for next year’s graduation!

Here are some more photos from the graduation ceremony, and I am hoping to be able to post a short clip soon too.

Congratulations to you all, and we hope to hear of even greater things from you in the future. Hats-off to our new Master of Leading Innovation and Change graduates !

2012 Highlights: Graduations at Carlisle Cathedral

As 2012 comes to an end, we would like to share with you one of the highlights of the year: the University of Cumbria graduations held at Carlisle Cathedral on the 22 November.

The graduations were attended by several MBA in Leadership & Sustainability graduates who received their degrees from the Chancellor of the University of Cumbria: the Most Reverend and Right Honourable Dr John Sentamu, Archbishop of York.

Graduations are certainly a major highlight of the year for Robert Kennedy College. Graduation time is when talented students from all over the world reach another height in their personal and professional careers, namely the University of Cumbria MBA.  We congratulate Carol Aebi from Colorado, Richard Lau from Bermuda, Laura Caiello from Brasil, Zeljka Plancherel from Switzerland, Johan Poelstra from Poland and all the MBA class of 2012 graduates.

To inspire you in the upcoming year 2013, I am happy to share further photos of our graduations at the Carlisle Cathedral.
The gallery below features our proud 2012 MBA graduates and some of our faculty members including myself, Dr. Alistair Benson, our Deputy Dean Prof. David Duffill and the MBA programme leader Dr. John Luffrum
