Graduation day for Weekend Executive Master of Business Administration Programme.

On December 11, the Law Faculty of Comenius University in Bratislava held a graduation ceremony for the Weekend Executive Master of Business Adminstration Programme (WEMBA), which is organised and supported by Comenius and the University of Pittsburgh. The first twelve men to have completed a three year part-time programme of advanced business studies received degrees at a ceremony attended by William Schofield, the deputy chief of mission of the US embassy. "The goal of the WEMBA program was to offer the knowledge and experience of Slovak and American teachers to Slovak students . Apart from the course of study, it was important to open new contacts among the students", said Ben Tuchi, a finance professor at the University of Pittsburgh.
