Remise des diplomes
Today marks the official end of the 16-month HEC MBA. Lots of celebration ahead, but honestly speaking I can do away with the convocation itself.
Last year's was unpleasant for the MBAs. The entire class stayed seated for two hours as graduates from other programs (about 1,000 students I believe) were called first. I'm sure I'll be able to relate to Mark's experience at HBS minus the cold, rainy weather.
After the ceremony, we are celebrating our graduation lavishly at le Chateau de Dampierre, 10km away from the HEC campus. Let's hope the Gala Committee ordered enough cases of champagne.
