More than 100 graduates are celebrating their achievements after receiving their degrees from the University of Stirling during a special ceremony at Muscat College in Oman.

Senior members of staff from the University travelled to the Middle Eastern country for the conferment of degrees across accountancy, business and computing courses, delivered in partnership with Muscat College.

Professor Neville Wylie, Deputy Principal (Internationalisation) travelled to Muscat to celebrate the students’ achievements, along with Dr Mario Kolberg, Associate Dean (Internationalisation) for the Faculty of Natural Sciences, and Dr Andrew Perchard, Academic Partnership Director (Muscat) at Stirling Management School.

“We are proud of our partnership with Muscat College and it is a privilege to be part of the students’ graduation ceremony, which provides recognition of their commitment and hard work,” Professor Wylie said.

“The time that the students have spent with us will prepare them for a wide range of exciting and successful careers. We look forward to welcoming them into our global family of alums and watching their lives and careers flourish.”

The ceremony took place at Muscat College with 106 students graduating in Computing Science, Business Studies, Accountancy and Computing Science, Accountancy and Business Studies, and Business Computing.

In January, the University introduced an MSc Management to its programme at Muscat, with the first cohort of students due to graduate next year. In 2019, Stirling will launch another two programmes – an MSc Big Data and MSc Data Science for Business – after recently receiving approval from the Omani Ministry of Education.

The prospects of Stirling graduates are bolstered by the University’s excellent employability credentials, with more than 96 percent of graduates in work or further study within six months.
