Graduates at the Singapore Graduation Ceremony 2019

The University’s Principal and Vice Chancellor, Professor Gerry McCormac, conferred degrees on 65 graduates from the BA (Hons) Retail Marketing, BA (Hons) Sport Business Management, BA (Hons) Sustainable Events Management, and BA (Hons) Sports Studies and Marketing courses.

All four courses are taught at SIM GE by lecturers from Stirling Management School. This is the first year in which students have graduated in Sport Business Management and Sustainable Events Management – which were added to the portfolio in 2016.

Professor McCormac said: "Once again, it has been a privilege to confer degrees on our graduates and help them celebrate their well-deserved success. I wish them all the best as they begin their future careers shaping the retail, events and sports industries.

“Our partnership with the Singapore Institute of Management Global Education continues to go from strength-to-strength, as demonstrated by the growing number of courses being offered. Singapore is a key part of Stirling’s global outlook, and our graduates from here sit proudly among our 92,000-strong family of alumni around the world.
