for their commitment and hard work.

This excellent outdoor ceremony was held in Beirut at one of the AUCE campuses and attended by almost 1,000 people. In the evening guests and dignitaries attended a gala dinner to celebrate the graduation and the gaining of BAC accreditation for the institution.

ICM has recently developed strong links with the AUCE and accredit a range of Diplomas and qualifications including the AUCE Freshman programme.

Tom Thomas said, “The AUCE is an excellent organisation with dedicated staff.

I was pleased to be part of the graduation ceremony and it was a pleasure to see all the students come forward to receive their degrees with such excitement and satisfaction. I am sure that in future the relationship between ICM and AUCE will grow. There is real potential for the development of a range of new programmes in the business area and we hope to work with the AUCE to provide further scope for education in the region.”
