The International University of Monaco held its traditional graduation ceremony on Saturday, June 24, in the prestigious setting of the Salle des Princes of the Grimaldi Forum.
More than 1,300 close friends from all over the world celebrated with the students the end of a cycle and an important chapter in their lives. Representing more than 75 countries, these new graduates have joined the ranks of IUM alumni, whose number now stands at 2,782.
The Best School Spirit Award, the Monaco Outreach Award, and the Contribution to the Future Award were among the prizes given.
The “Peace & Sport” association, represented by its President and Founder Joël Bouzou, came to honour the event, which conveys a message about the values of the association.
In terms of new developments in 2017, the graduation ceremony was marked by the Bachelor’s degree “Monaco Banking and Financial Services”, a programme offered for the first time this year, created in partnership with the Prince’s government and AMAF, the Monegasque Association of Financial Activities.
Thirty-one years after its first beginnings, the International University of Monaco now offers four specialisations in Bachelors degrees and five specialised Masters, in Finance, Luxury Management, International Marketing, Luxury Marketing and Sport Management, an AMBA-accredited MBA and a DBA that bring together a total of more than 600 students at its premises at Stade Louis II.
