MCNY Graduation speech 2012
Ladies and Gentlemen: families, friends, honorable guests and distinguished MCNY faculty, it’s a great honor to stand before you today on behalf of the graduating class of 2012 and reflect on our feelings in this great moment of our lives.
I would like to share a story with you. When I started the school I was terrified.
More than couple of years has passed by since I finished my bachelor degree and there I was… In school again… reading through the syllabuses and class requirements.
But a week has passed by and we had our first assignment that I decided to complete, thinking – I will give a try, if this doesn’t work I can always drop out.
I got tense and replied: Example of what? What not to do?
And 18 months later I am standing in the front of you and together we can celebrate our accomplishment!
During our journey in MCNY, three things became essential parts of our life: assignments, presentations, and group projects. As we all know the group projects were the most challenging, but in the end they taught us a fundamental lesson: to be team players and how to become good leaders.
At MCNY, we discovered how to become job creators, not job seekers. Our constructive action classes taught us what is required to turn a simple idea into a successful business, we learned how to write an ultimate business plan, and how to finance and market that business plan.
Our study abroad was one of the most valuable experiences in the program, one that enhanced and expanded our horizons.
We experienced the business world in a global context and developed a more sophisticated perspective. The study abroad also strengthened our friendships through the work we did and the fun we had… But I am not sharing the details. What happened in London stays in London.
Graduation is not an end; it is a beginning of our new journey to pursue our dreams. I would like to congratulate and thank you all.
On behalf of the graduate students of 2012. I would like to thank all the professors and staff of MCNY.
Thank you for what you have given us: for your time, energy, patience, and all your hard work.
Our parents, spouses, siblings, and all our loved ones that are witnessing our graduation today, There is no words that could express how thankful we are that we have you in our lives. Thank you for your support, encouragement, prayers and understanding
Congratulation to All
