Cathedral venue for IBS ceremony

A graduation ceremony has been held for 70 local students who have completed their studies at the International Business School.

Hundreds of guests, including academic staff, VIPs, supporters of the IBS and relatives gathered at St German's Cathedral in Peel for the event.

The congregation was addressed by acting director of the IBS Dr Jacqueline Yates, and Professor Paul Joyce from Liverpool John Moores University admitted the students to their degrees and diplomas.

Qualifications were awarded in six business disciplines, including an honours degree and a post-graduate diploma, both in business administration.

Qualifications from the Chartered Institutes of Marketing and Personnel and Development were gained.

This year's outstanding student was Christa Worth who received the Deloitte prize for Best Overall Undergraduate Student and the Britannia International Prize for Exceptional Performance for an Dissertation.

The graduation ceremony was held on Friday.
