ACQUIRING knowledge and academic qualifications is to help graduates have an employment but along the way, there is much to learn in life, the Deputy Head of Australia’s Southern Cross University said.
“Graduates will have to learn some of the simple things in life, like time management.
“But some are complex like preparing reports that are of professional standard, knowing how to go about solving problems, analyse and interpret information and to develop a love and thirst for knowledge.
“Your studies also assist you in developing a professional approach to everything you do, to understand the value of academic integrity and to be creative and innovative,” Mr Vitartas said at the Institute of Business Studies (IBS) 11th annual graduation ceremony last Friday.
He urged graduates to be productive citizens and continue to be valuable to their families and societies.
Friends and families of 393 students attended the convocation.
IBS has been providing tertiary education in accounting, business and computing for the past 21 years.
Seven students in accounting and one in information systems graduated in the Southern Cross University’s programmes through distance education.
Four graduates were from 6-Mile and one, who was physically disadvantaged, completed their programmes on full scholarship.
