On Saturday June 22nd, IUM celebrated its newly graduated students, the class of 2019, with emotion and pride!
In the prestigious Salle des Princes of the Grimaldi Forum, 1500 relatives came from all over the world to celebrate with the students the end of the academic year and the beginning of a new chapter in their lives. Representing 46 countries, those 260 new graduates have joined the community of IUM alumni (3247 graduates as of today).
Families, friends, professors and classmates were all present to applaud their graduates during this ceremony!
This year, we had the chance to welcome Mr. Bertrand Badré, as our Keynote Speaker for the day.
Mr. Badré is currently CEO at Blue like an Orange Sustainable Capital and Co-Chair Global Future Council Sustainable Development at the World Economic Forum.
