Atlanta – Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business held two commencement ceremonies with 504 undergraduates receiving their B.B.A. degrees and 225 graduate students receiving their MBA and master’s degrees.
The student bodies for both graduating classes spanned five continents and multiple generations. According to Robinson College Dean Richard Phillips, this diversity enhanced their educational experience and will help them deliver greater value throughout their careers.
“Robinson College students graduate from one of the most diverse student bodies of any business school in the United States. They not only learn from Robinson faculty, but also from each other. Their differences are their strengths, making them more creative, less likely to consider obstacles impossible to overcome, and far more likely to thrive in the global marketplace,” said Dean Phillips.
