MSBM welcomed hundreds of new graduate and undergraduate students for the academic year 2020/21 in virtual orientation sessions held over the period August 11 to September 1, 2020. These cohorts have the distinction of being the first set of students to begin their programme of study in an online/remote mode.
Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the planning teams ensured that the virtual sessions provided the opportunity for students to engage with faculty and staff and receive critical information regarding their academic journey. The sessions were facilitated live by the Admissions Teams to ensure that the students had a seamless introduction to the MSBM experience.
In light of the focus on Online learning, students were provided with tips for success and with a set of valuable resources as part of their virtual packages to assist in the transition.
The programme also included testimonials from alumni about their experience while studying at MSBM and the ways in which that has aided in their professional development and in the case of the undergraduate session, introductions to some of the clubs and societies on campus.
Each general session was followed by breakout sessions by programme which included robust discussions and a high level of engagement by the students with the faculty members and each other.
MSBM stands by its mission to advance learning, create knowledge and foster innovation and we are working assiduously to ensure that we deliver an excellent experience to all our students in their quest to pursue higher education.
Welcome all new students!
