One of the unique things about the CQEMBA program is that we graduate with two MBA degrees – one from Queen’s and one from Cornell. That means that next month, during graduation week-end, we will have the privilege of attending convocation ceremonies at both schools. At Cornell, this will involve both a Johnson School ceremony as well as a university-wide commencement.
While the pomp and circumstance will bring a meaningful conclusion to our academic journey, I am most excited about catching up with classmates, meeting their families, and socializing without the pressure of deliverables. I am also looking forward to meeting some of our professors with whom we have interacted virtually, but haven’t yet met in person.
We have some amazing classmates – some who have been working hard to pull together a class party in Ithaca, others who have been communicating with teammates to build momentum for our class fundraising campaign, and still others who have made the commitment to keep our class connected post-MBA. It’s fantastic to see the enthusiasm for both our schools.
CQEMBA 2014 – we’ll see you soon!
