Summer Congregation Celebrations 2019

Summer Congregation Celebrations were held at the Business School in July to celebrate the fantastic achievements of our graduates. Organised by the School’s alumni team, the events gave graduates the opportunity to return to the School and reconnect with fellow students and School staff. The event preceded the brilliant Congregation Ceremony at Durham Cathedral.

Graduates and their families had gathered from around the globe with some travelling from as far as Australia. Upon arrival, graduates were given a goody bag (including the new issue of IMPACT magazine) and refreshments were provided in Fusion and the Lounge. Prize ceremonies were held for the Durham MBA (Online), Durham MBA (Full-time), Durham-EBS EMBA, MA Management (Part-time) and PhD.

Photos of the day can be viewed here.

We wish everyone well with their futures, and be sure to stay in touch!
