Following their formal congregation, the students and their families and friends celebrated in style with a champagne reception and awards presentation.

In total 39 students received awards, which were given for the best dissertation and best student on each programme.

Newcastle University Business School’s director of postgraduate studies, Neil Alderman, said: "This event is a highlight for the Business School as it gives us the chance to recognise  the effort and endeavour of each of our students and to congratulate them on their success. A business school masters demands intensive study and reaching the standard required for the award of a Masters degree is a tremendous achievement.

"The graduation, reception and prize giving form a milestone in the students' educational careers.”

Now that the students have graduated, Newcastle University Business School is already working hard to ensure that they stay in touch with the graduates as their degree takes them into the international business community.
