Graduation Ceremony of XIII MBA Edition – 25.03.2023

On 25th of March 2023 Graduates of the XIII MBA Edition received their diplomas and officialy became MBA Alumni! It was a momentous for them and to the whole MBA Community.

The end of the adventure

The past two years of studies have certainly not been effortless. There was a lot of learning and challenges in online meetings and since restrictions were abolished – during stationary modules on Gdańsk-Tech. After overcoming pandemic obstacles, XIII Edition Students experienced another challenge – losing the Faculty building. Finding the new place for conducting the classes, travelling through the University Campus didn’t bother the Students and finally the defended their Capstone Project in December 2023. As the symbolic finale of their adventurous time on Faculty of Management and Economics, Students of the XIII Cohort met at the Heveliust’s Courtyard of the Gdańsk University of Technology. This place is a special one because inside it is a Foucalt’s pendulum, which indicates the rotation of the earth. This time, nothing limited us. Our Graduates came to the Ceremony with their families and friends which to spend their last hours as MBA Students with thier closest relatives.

We are Alumni!

The Graduation was conducted by Krzysztof Zięba, Associate Professor, MBA Quality Lead and Lecturer.
