FSB’s business graduates were celebrated at London Metropolitan University’s Winter Graduation ceremony and recognised for their distinctive creativity and ingenuity on Monday 2nd December, at the bespoke Barbican Centre.

Graduation Day is a significant time when FSB students can take a look back at what they have accomplished since they first arrived and how they have changed and developed as an individual and as part of a community.

The School was delighted to welcome back its graduating students across its London Metropolitan University accredited programmes in business. FSB students and their families travelled to London from all over the world to attend a wonderful celebration of their academic achievements. The graduation ceremony was followed by a drinks reception where the new graduates revived old friendships and celebrated with peers, family and FSB staff.

Students from business subject areas took to the stage to shake hands with Professor Lynn Dobbs, London Metropolitan University’s Vice-Chancellor, before receiving their degrees.

Additionally, my family, friends and FSB staff are all very proud of me and this has given me a great sense of fulfilment. The ceremony was very well organised and it was the perfect way to conclude many years of hard work.’

FSB has taught you to live your own life – not the one that others have planned for you – so, go forth, remain aspirant and take a part of FSB with you. But never forget the moralities of tolerance and respect that you have established with us. Live these! Hold them close! Everyone is enormously proud of you today and we are sure you will continue to make us proud of you incessantly.’
