Friday, July 13th, 2012

Management School Postgraduate staff and students enjoyed a relaxing evening celebrating the end of the academic year on Friday 6th July at the ICOSS centre.

MSc, MBA and PhD students were invited to attend this special evening to network with fellow students and staff, and join in the celebration of all of the hard work of the staff, students, alumni and friends of the school over the past year.

The evening also provided a chance for students to get to know about alumni benefits and services available to them after completing their studies,  and information about how they can continue their relationship with the school by joining the alumni network. Professor Lenny Koh, Associate Dean of Alumni Relations, welcomed guests and gave a short talk about the recent achievements and developments at the Management School, and how alumni can keep in touch with the School and University.
