The Dean’s Graduation Speech: Make a Valuable Difference to Communities!

Distinguished guests, faculty members, ladies and gentlemen and fellow graduates. Assalamu’alaikum Warohmatullohi Wabarokatuh, Salam Sejahtera, and Selamat Malam.
My congratulations to all our fantastic graduates here today.

I would like to convey our Dean’s apology unable to attend this graduation celebration night for a duty as an assessor at National Accreditation Board. He is now in Palembang for visitation at a university. His warm regards for all you. I am thus acting as a dean for this graduation night.

It is an honor for me to present this graduation speech for the period of April 2014 as in front of me there are alumni who are ready to take the next steps in their new seasons of life to be entrepreneurial and professional leaders in business. As the vision of our school is to be “a world class business school that inspires and develops future entrepreneurial leaders”, I dedicate this speech on behalf of my fellow faculty members to our graduates and family members. Our graduate will soon serve the community and conquer all their hurdles and difficulties in their futures.

When we look back behind, our students were coming from different backgrounds and passed the highly admission process. They have been through difficult times in completing semester by semester. Our education system provides students to cultivate their talents and develop their capacity to recognized different business settings. Business is not only associated with tight competition but also with endurance and having knowledge to make differences better than competitors. But at the same time, students have to cooperate in teamwork and sharpen their social competencies. The combination between hard and soft skills become important to equip students to gain actionable knowledge in order to engage in business world with high uncertainties, dynamics, opportunities, and risky. We are confident that once our students become graduates they are prepared to utilize and develop knowledge in their next professional life. They will be business professionals and entrepreneurial leaders to make a valuable difference to and deliver strong benefits for our communities.

As our graduates come from many different cultures and backgrounds, they become our ambassadors who do two common things.
