In early July, IPADE celebrated the graduates of the Full-Time MBA Class of 2019, who reached the end of their time on campus. Families and friends of the graduates were invited to celebrate alongside the IPADE professors, administrators, and leaders that supported their loved ones over the past two years at celebrations held in Mexico City and Monterrey, respectively.
During his closing remarks, Ernesto Bolio Barajas, Director of the Full-Time MBA Program, shared his thoughts on each graduate’s responsibility to positively impact society.
“More than a full-time program, this program is really a life-long program,” he said. “The habits and skills that you’ve acquired over the past two years have made you more capable of navigating the business world and have given you a greater understanding of our current reality and your ever increasing responsibility to society and the world. Each one of you must continue down the path of self-improvement, working to improve yourself in every aspect of your lives in order to become the person you were meant to be.”
During the ceremonies, the class presidents also shared a farewell message with their classmates where they recalled anecdotes from the past two years and encouraged each graduate to take pride in being part of the IPADE community.
The 120 participants of the XLVIII Full-Time MBA graduating Class of 2019 came from 12 different countries, with 46 participants graduating from the program in Monterrey and 74 in Mexico City.
Congratulations to the recent graduates, and welcome to the community of more than 40,000 IPADE alumni!
