More than 1000 students graduate from University of Papua New Guinea

More than 1000 students have graduated during the University of Papua New Guinea's 61st graduation ceremony today. About  300 students  from the School of Business were  among more than 1, 000 graduands to pass out this morning marking DAY 1.

Vice Chancellor for the UPNG, Professor Albert Mellam while congratulating the graduands, reminded them of the challenges that await them as a result of changes that have taken place over time.
“We live in a time of change that includes accelerated globalization, revolutionary advancement in Information Technology and the clash of civilization and these transformations demand new order thinking for the new graduands”
He said every graduand should ask themselves how they can sustain self enterprising growth in today’s highly competitive global environment and how they can enhance their chances of positive path growth in their careers or self employment.
“These are fundamental questions that need to be asked so that you prepare yourself for what is out there and you must know how to survive in very competitive world that is changing real fast” said Professor Mellam.
Professor Mellam urged the graduands to utilise whatever skills or knowledge they’ve acquired from the University and contribute meaningfully to the development of the country.
He also reminded them that not all of them will get employment but they must use their skills in other areas as long as they have a job. 
Meanwhile the graduation will end tomorrow with the School of Humanities & Social Sciences, School of Law and School of Medicine & Health Sciences to graduate.
