Graduation was great

The entrance to main reception at the Edinburg...

I had a great time at my MBA graduation yesterday. It was strange visiting Heriot-Watt, the university I’ve been studying with for the last few years and where I had never been before. I had seen photos and pictures so some images rang a bell, but it was great to actually walk through the corridors and see people in the flesh. The ceremony also brought home how truly international the EBS MBA is. There were graduands from all around the world and I was proud to be one of them.

The graduation was pretty inspirational with an honorary doctorate being presented to Douglas Anderson OBE for his outstanding contribution to engineering design and medical instrumentation.

I’ll be uploading some photos soon to show everything, I just wanted to share a couple of thoughts from the day.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS Owen! I’m going back to school in January, and I’m a bit scared and a lot nervous. It’s been a LONG time, but I think it will only benefit me and my family in the end.

  2. @Julie: It’s a worth-while thing to do. Investing in yourself is something that no one can take away from you and it will help open more doors for you.

  3. Congrats to you! I was an adult student when I got my BS, and it was one heck of a journey. I can only imagine an MBA.

    Congrats Again,

  4. How wonderful! To get your MBA while working full time, blogging and helping people (like me) is a real accomplishment. Congratulations!

  5. A big congratulations! So it was all done online? (Might sound like a duh question, but…) and good for you! I’ve yet to discover what I want to be “when I grow up!” LOL!

  6. @Diane: It was done by correspondence. They sent me the books and I sat for the exams locally. But they do have a website where you can download PDF versions of the books, see past papers and communicate directly with the faculty and lecturers. Was a great experience
