Graduation marks one of the most pivotal moments in a person’s life. After years of dedicated hard work, the commencement ceremony gives a fresh batch of new graduates the chance to reflect on their experience and success. It also gives family members, staff, and faculty the opportunity to celebrate the students’ accomplishments, before they embark on the next phase in their journey.
On Tuesday, May 28, hundreds of guests gathered at the beautiful and historic Orpheum theatre, to attend the graduation ceremony of the New York Institute of Technology’s Vancouver campus. This year was particularly special since it was the largest class the school has seen since it opened.
With more than 350 graduating students, NYIT-Vancouver is proud of the strength and diversity of the class, representing more than 20 countries. Saluting the candidates on their next chapter was a number of notable guests, including Irene Young, executive director and Vancouver campus dean; Dr. Lou Reinisch, associate provost of academic affairs; and Patrick Minson, vice president for development and alumni relations.
NYIT-Vancouver, which also has campuses in New York and Arkansas, is a graduate school offering master’s degrees in cybersecurity, energy management, instructional technology, and MBA. Given that these sectors are booming in Vancouver, the school’s graduates can be prepared to walk straight into sought-after jobs with some of the best employers in their chosen industry.
This is one of the reasons that NYIT-Vancouver attracts students from all over the world, particularly to the MBA and MBA with finance concentration, which are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
It is also possible for a student to attend semesters in each NYIT location while working toward the same degree.
