Graduation is a moment to celebrate the passage from MBA students to MBA Alumni.
As MBA students, they shared their studies, the commitments and the demanding activities required to acquire further knowledge and values, growing both personally and professionally. As graduating students, they will become members of a community of future leaders.
The Graduation Day is the day for the graduates and their families to feel the excitement of all these talents entering in our society.
LUISS Business School is glad to host Giorgio Milesi, Head Southern Europe Johnson & Johnson Medical, that will hold the MBA inspirational talk.
