LOS ANGELES, Calif., Dec. 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — A perfect ending to a years’ worth of hard work, CalUniversity celebrated the graduation of its inaugural class of students on November 19th, 2010. With the majority of students receiving their Doctorate degrees and others earning their Master’s and Bachelor degrees, the class of 2010 is now prepared to enter, or in some cases continue to thrive in, today’s work force armed with the knowledge and know-how to make a name for themselves and succeed.
While overjoyed to close this chapter of their lives, students were not the only ones accepting their degrees as former Walnut Mayor Tom King was also presented with an honorary doctorate during the graduation ceremony.
A diverse class, many of the graduates are already well established, senior-level working professionals who were looking to supplement their knowledge base with a solid foundation in business and entrepreneurial skills, something CalUniversity specializes in. With this focus on entrepreneurism, former Walnut Mayor Tom King was the perfect guest speaker and honoree as he has gone above and beyond in his work with the business community. In addition, Dr. Finian Tan, Chairman of CalUniversity and CEO of Vickers Financial Group, was also present and provided his inspiring thoughts on the growing global economy.
“We are very proud of our inaugural class and think that this group of highly intelligent business people are a great representation of CalUniversity,” said CalUniversity Chairman and CEO Dr. Shaan Kumar. “We have built our programs to foster the entrepreneurs of tomorrow by offering them guidance and resources from the global entrepreneurs of today. This class is leaving here with all the tools necessary to create their own success and we wish them the best of luck as they move forward.”
To even further the focus on entrepreneurism and the many opportunities at hand for the class of 2010, the CalUniversity graduation ceremony was immediately followed by Entrepreneur’s Conference 2010 (econ2010), a gathering of prominent and successful entrepreneurs. Made as a forum to celebrate National Entrepreneur’s Day, this event was put on by the United States Global Enterprise Association (USGEA) and hosted speakers from various walks of life who could offer advice for the graduating class.
