Congratulations to the Graduates of the
Telfer Executive MBA Class of 2017

Members of the Telfer Executive MBA Class of 2017 received their degree on June 21, 2017.

Telfer Executive MBA candidates and family members celebrated together at the Chateau Laurier prior to joining the rest of the Telfer School’s graduates at the Shaw Centre for the official ceremony. It may have been an intimate group but it was large celebration of 21 months of hard work, dedication leadership and growth for each of the 37 graduates and their families. Graduates congratulated each other, introduced their extended families and posed for photos for keepsakes.   

Toward the end of the event Sophia Leong, Executive Director of the Telfer Executive MBA, provided her own congratulations and praise to the graduates and a big 'thank you' for the support they received from their family and friends. She asked family and friends to join her at the front of the room so that each graduate could applaud and thank their support network – “each of you are members of the Telfer Executive MBA’s extended community” welcomed Sophia.

The Class of 2017 also had a surprise for Sophia as Michael Bell, EMBA 2017 Class President presented a framed gift of a colourful and detailed clothe Malaysian kit to her. Bringing this gift back from their International Business Consulting Trip destination, the Class of 2017 continue the tradition of presenting the executive director of the program with the class gift to the program.

The official Convocation ceremony kicked off at 2:30 p.m. and the celebrations continued for many with family for dinner and drinks.

Congratulations to our newly minted Executive MBA graduates.
