Rome Business School (member of Planeta Formación y Universidades, an international network created in 2003 by De Agostini and the Planeta Group) celebrated the graduation ceremony of the 2020-2021 course. In a year marked by the pandemic, more than 1500 students from the MBA, Master and Executive Master programs of the academic years 2018, 2019 and 2020 attended a ceremony that combined online and on-site events.
Daniele Maver, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover, addressed the students of RBS, inviting them to put a lot of passion into what they do, according to him this will make them real leaders: “knowledge and skills are what that you learned in the business school and give you the basic ingredients to be effective professionals and managers. Passion is what will give you the impetus to be a leader.”
Maver, whose company presented the record sales figures this year of 30,000 units including 10,000 Jaguars and 20,000 LRs – emphasized the effort of business schools to adapt to the new business reality: “recently, Business Schools have developed a far-sighted and very positive vision, incorporating new concepts and skills, such as sustainability (not only environmental, but also social), soft skills or change management. This is helping future leaders to adapt to an increasingly changing environment “.
Rome Business School’s Dean, Antonio Ragusa, wanted to congratulate the students for having successfully passed a year marked by the pandemic. Dean Ragusa underlines the importance of this event because despite the health emergency, neither the students nor Rome Business School has stopped: “In particular, I would like to highlight how precisely in this period we have not only grown from a quantitative point of view, but we have received numerous awards for the quality of our work”. In fact, ten of the RBS Masters have been ranked among the best in the world in the Eduniversal ranking and the School has achieved further prestigious accreditations both at national level by ASFOR and internationally with EOCCS / EFMD.
In addition, over 70 prestigious Italian and international companies have joined the Corporate Advisory Board of RBS and with the career service a placement rate of 96% has been achieved. For the Dean, all this gives further confirmation of the fact that “our training activities and our professional support fully meet the needs of the world of work and create real opportunities for our students”.
The 2020-2021 class is strongly marked by the health restrictions imposed by the pandemic. As pointed out by the student Luna Nguyen, of the Master in Human Resources Management: “We started our courses completely online with virtually no in-person meetings, but that certainly didn’t stop us from creating great experiences together. More importantly, we learned what consolidation is, and that” what doesn’t kill you makes you. harder”.
