On June 22, 2021 took place the Graduation Ceremony of the Aerospace MBA program, celebrating the Delegates who enrolled in 2019 in Toulouse and those from Batch 3 and Batch 4 in the frame of the partnership between TBS & IIMB.
Some prerecorded videos have been displayed. Please find below my last speech as former Director of the Aerospace MBA invited to share few words.
Dear Aerospace MBA graduates, Dear Alumni
Despite the awkward circumstances, I’d like to sincerely congratulate you for your achievement. You deserve to celebrate this successful journey, in this online ceremony but hopefully in the real life as well among your families, close friends and colleagues. You can be proud of you and your supportive families. To me and the Aerospace MBA team (Marie, Julie, Tricia, Sarah, Chris and the faculty), you’ve been a source of pride, joy and even inspiration.
Wherever we’re living on the planet, we’ve all experienced turbulent times and profound challenges, by the way exactly when we were supposed to greatly celebrate the 20th anniversary of the program. AOG suddenly stood for Aerospace MBA Anniversary on Ground. Since then, only time really flew fast and strong. Our lives have been changed, we grew, taking the most of our experience and learning. We now are all focused on meaningful activities with favorable impact on the community. I’m sure your transformational journey and your endeavor will reinforce your aptitudes to move into this new world. A lot of challenges ahead will simultaneously offer you many promising perspectives. I’m confident: you’re ready for this take-off.
As this is my last participation to the Aerospace MBA graduation ceremony, I’d like to express, on your behalf, our gratitude to our partners Airbus, ATR, Aerospace Valley and so many organizations who brought their relentless support over the years. I’d like to deeply thank IIMB, and especially Prof. Raghunath, Madan, Mohsina and the whole team. More than partners they became friends.
While the aerospace world is fantastic and sounds huge, it is actually a very small village. Hence I have no doubt we’ll continue to collaborate in the future. Congratulations and please continue to fly high!
