Congratulations to the Graduating Class of 2017

On behalf of the Director of the School of Business

I would like to extend a heartfelt congratulations to the graduating class of 2017. As Director of the School of Business, I have had the pleasure of seeing, first hand, your growth as individuals, and as intellectuals. I have been witness to some of your incredible achievements, from helping in the community through class projects, to being outstanding, award winning scholars.

The hours of studying, the late nights writing papers, and all of the sacrifices you have made throughout this program in order to be successful have paid off. I am sure this accomplishment is just the first of many to come for you, and as you leave UFV, I would like to wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

I look forward to seeing what is to come of the UFV School of Business alumni of 2017.

Kindest regards,
