Students from the University of Stirling’s accountancy, business and computing science courses delivered in partnership with Muscat College in Oman celebrated their graduation at a special ceremony this month.
Degrees were conferred upon more than 30 graduates from courses delivered by the Faculty of Natural Sciences, and Stirling Management School.
Dean of Stirling Management School, Professor Sharon Bolton, travelled to Oman with Professor David Mackay, Associate Dean for Internationalisation at Stirling Management School, to celebrate the students’ achievements.
Professor Bolton said: “We are proud of our partnership with Muscat College and it is always a privilege to be part of the students’ graduation ceremony. The conferment of degrees is recognition for their commitment and hard work.
“The time they spend studying with us is designed to prepare them for going out into the world to make a difference. We look forward to welcoming them into our global alumni family and watching their lives and careers flourish.”
The University of Stirling recently extended the successful partnership with Muscat College and introduced new undergraduate degrees in Human Resource Management and Marketing in September 2017. It will also introduce a Masters in Management in January 2018.
Stirling graduates’ prospects are bolstered by the University’s excellent job credentials. More than 96% of graduates are in work or further study within six months.
