At 11.00 am a photographer took official pictures of the Delegates. The cohort receives dozen of books. Fully equipped for the coming months! This actually will be the last cohort to benefit from this (heavy) set of books! In order to ease the process and make it possible to get prepares before the first lectures, a list of compulsory books will be provided beforehand to the future cohort.

At 11.45, Nicolas Osorio, President of the Aerospace MBA Alumni Association presents his team (Jean-Michel Barthez, Chao Wu, Muthukumaran Thangaraju) and the diverse activities and services provided by the Association.

Then it’s lunch time! A great opportunity to meet up with the current Part-Time cohort (PT11) and the soon-to-be-graduates Aerospace MBA Delegates from both Part-Time (PT10) and Full-Time (FT17) programs.
