9,195 degrees completed
The academic honours being awarded to the new graduates brings the number of degrees completed at IMC Krems to almost 9,200 since the university was founded in 1994. Among the guests at the graduations will be numerous figures from research, teaching, politics and business. These include Austrian Federal Council member Doris Berger-Grabner, Provincial Councillor Ludwig Schleritzko and member of the Lower Austrian Provincial Parliament Josef Edlinger, who will be attending a number of the ceremonies on behalf of the Governor of Lower Austria, Johanna Mikl-Leitner. During graduation week IMC Krems will welcome over 6,000 guests, who are travelling from all over the world to take part. This provides a significant boost for the hotels and restaurants in and around Krems. As usual, the ceremonies are also being streamed live on the internet so people who are unable to attend do not miss out.
The imminent additions to IMC Krems’ alumni made some lasting impressions during their studies – at high-profile companies during their internships for instance. The graduation ceremonies are an opportunity for the graduating students to reflect on the importance of nurturing the skills and know-how they have obtained – and developing them with regular training – as well as on how they can promote the goals of science, use their acquired knowledge and expertise to help solve the problems currently facing society, and make a responsible contribution to its healthy development. The excellent job prospects that IMC Krems graduates enjoy – as confirmed by numerous studies – and the values instilled in them during their time at the university means that these new alumni can look forward to a bright future.
