American Management University will have her first live graduation ceremony in nearly three years. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019 has prevented the school from holding any live graduation because of the lockdown issued to curb the spread of the virus. With the lockdown rules now eased, the university’s first live graduation ceremony since 2019 is tentatively set for September 10, 2022 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. At the event, current graduates and past graduates who were honored in virtual ceremonies will be honored for their achievements.
Speaking about the graduation ceremony, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the University, Roy Virgen Jr. had this to say, “We’re really looking forward to this event. The pandemic really changed how schools and students interacted. We were able to change our approach to get through COVID, now we have a chance to honor those students who stuck by us and honor those who joined us as the world began to improve.”
A handful of recipients will receive an honorary doctorate, among them is award-winning children’s book author, Aaron Ozee who is best known for the book, Regulus. The American Management University is recognizing Dr. Ozee’s achievements and philanthropy by honoring him with the school’s first ever honorary Doctor of Humane Letters.
While other schools were closing their doors during the pandemic, the American Management University continued to offer programs—remotely—to students all over the world. According to the university, many students enrolled in its business and management programs from Southeast Asia, which is why Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam was chosen for its graduation ceremony.
“The location of the event is still being determined, but I assure you that it will be a wonderful event for the graduates, their friends and family, and members of the International Alliance of Business Professionals, our non-profit sponsor,” explained Roy Virgen Jr.
Tickets will go on sale soon for IABP members to network, watch the ceremony, and enjoy a wonderful dinner.
