The largest Victoria University (VU) Switzerland Master of Business Administration contingent yet from the Philippines trekked to Hong Kong recently to receive their hard-earned MBA degree scrolls at the Asia World Expo beside the Hong Kong International Airport in Lantau.
Enrolled under the blended learning program of Victoria University run by Gates Professional Schools in the Philippines, 15 Filipino graduates completed their MBA education mostly under the fast track schedule of only 10 months.
This year's graduates from the Philippines were led by Chancellor's Awardees for Academic Excellence Rosemarie Ribo Esguerra and Rommel Rañola Trinidad. Esguerra also delivered the valedictory address on behalf of the students together with VU Doctor of Business Administration graduate Lok Peng Tong from China. Other graduates from the Philippines who made the trip to Hong Kong were Maria Elenor Ayento, Armin Butalid, Sarah Deloraya, Simeona Ibañez, Mariam Macud, Analiza Remedios, Erilene Tumali and Mae Vicente.
They joined over 700 other graduates from 12 different countries who completed the VU BBA, MBA, DBA or Executive programs.
