Excellent final thesis and extraordinary academic performance
Each semester as a traditional part of the graduation ceremony, the “IUBH Best Thesis Award” is given for the best bachelor and master thesis. The Patrons Association of IUBH University of Applied Sciences sponsors this award. Max Schneider, an international management graduate, received the award for his bachelor thesis. Tongwei Yang, an international management graduate, received the award for his master thesis. On behalf of the Patrons Association Ulrich Jünger presented the winners with a book voucher worth €250 book.
Best academic achievement was also honoured. Katharina Kleinekemper stood out with her 1.1 grade point average for her bachelor degree in hospitality management (Fast Track), and Richard Axmann attained a 1.3 grade point average for his master degree in international management. For their achievements, they were awarded with hotel vouchers for Adina Apartment Hotels and Leonardo Hotels.
Persistence and networks pay off
A highlight of the graduation ceremony was the keynote address delivered by Moritz Dietl, managing partner of Treugast Solutions Group and an IUBH graduate. Dietl advised the graduates to be persistent, use networks and accept responsibility. When starting a job he recommended paying less attention to salary and more to finding something you enjoy doing that gives you experience to build your career.
After further speeches from faculty and graduates, the official part of the graduation ceremony ended by switching the tassel of the graduation cap from the right side to the left side. In the Kameha Dome and on the terraces looking out to the Rhine River, family and friends toasted to the graduates.
