Prof. Szamosi commented: “Working with Armenian students is a wonderful experience for any academic and I am really proud of working in Armenia. During the last three years I worked with nearly 80 Armenian students. Without any compromise, our graduates today are advocates of quality education. They keep an interest towards new knowledge, constantly grow and want to improve. And this is a quality to be inspired from. For me, the biggest challenge is to keep alive the wish to overcome challenges in a student who is an employee and has the first specialisation. Armenian students constantly present us with challenges and as education is a world necessity, the more we learn from the student and teach him, the better”.

MBA graduate, Anahit Shahmuradyan, said after receiving the MBA degree: “My decision to join the Executive MBA programme that was offered in Armenia was made at a turning point in my life, I realized needed to make a big change in my professional life. Being a linguist, and also having a scientific degree, I decided to take the risk and learn finance and accounting. That was an area which seemed to be extremely strange and unknown. Studying at the Executive MBA Programme was one of the biggest challenges in my life, and I can now say with pride that I did it. I managed to overcome something which seemed to be inaccessible and impossible. I am holding today the University of Sheffield MBA degree in my hands and besides deep knowledge, it offered me experience, self-confidence and a sense of belonging to the world, being the world's citizen.“

The event was successful overall and was widely covered by local media.

CITY College warmly congratulates all MBA graduates in Armenia and wishes them every success in their future endeavors.
