We congratulate our IMM Global EMBA Class of 2014 upon their graduation on December 21, 2014. Students graduated with two MBA degrees -- one from Purdue University and one from an overseas partner school, either Tias School for Business and Society in the Netherlands or Central European University in Hungary. Twenty-one students graduated in the Class of 2014, with 19 traveling back to West Lafayette with friends and family members to take part in graduation festivities.
Members of IMM 2014 prep for graduation in Krannert Center's Weiler Lounge, where they spent so much time as students.
Four students, Sebastian Ahrens, Job Hoevenaars, Hendrik Leder and Richard Csuri, were named Beta Gamma (top 20% of their class) and Ahrens was honored for having the highest GPA in the cohort. Faculty awards went to Thomas Eppel (Outstanding Professor) and Filip Caeldries (Excellence in Teaching).
Our graduates are set for further success, and we wish them well as we look forward to welcoming the IMM Class of 2016 in March.
