GBS celebrates student success at summer graduation

Global Banking School (GBS) celebrated the success of its students with a graduation ceremony held at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre earlier this month

Global Banking School (GBS) celebrated the success of its students with a graduation ceremony held at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, on Tuesday 11th July.  The event marked an important milestone in the lives of these exceptional individuals, who worked diligently to achieve their academic goals, having to balance their studies with a range of commitments including work, family and caring.

The graduating class of 2023 received awards marking their success in a range of business and health related subjects. GBS students are all either in full-time work or raising families, but GBS have developed and honed ways of working with and supporting these students such that their dreams of improving their lives through education can become reality. Our students have demonstrated remarkable determination, perseverance, and intellectual growth throughout their educational journey. Under the guidance of dedicated faculty members, these students have acquired a comprehensive set of skills and knowledge that will serve as a solid foundation for their future endeavours and ensure they are making valued contributions to society.

GBS were proud to have Sir Graham Brady, Conservative MP for Altrincham and Sale West, and Chair of the Conservative Party 1922 Committee, as their guest of honour who addressed graduates and celebrated their remarkable achievements.

Professor Ray Lloyd, chief executive officer, said of the occasion. “We are immensely proud of our new graduates. They have had to overcome many challenges to complete their studies and we are immensely proud of what they have achieved.  It gives us much satisfaction to celebrate their success with them, just as it has been a privilege to work with such an extraordinary group of people as they have progressed through their challenging journey with us at GBS. They have grasped the opportunity that a GBS education can provide, and we are confident that they will now go on to achieve even more in their careers. We wish them every success for the future.”

The graduation ceremony was a joyous occasion filled with a sense of accomplishment, pride, and anticipation for the future. Families, friends, faculty members, and distinguished guests gathered to honour and celebrate. GBS is immensely proud of each graduate, recognising their unique contributions and the positive impact they will undoubtedly make in their respective fields.
