See highlights from the 2012 Commencement Ceremony

The School of Business Administration said good-bye to 232 undergraduate and graduate students on Sunday, May 20 at the Flynn Theater in Burlington.  189 undergraduate and 43 graduate degrees were handed out during the two-hour ceremony.

“You are poised at the threshold of new challenges and new dreams,” Dean Sanjay Sharma told the Class of 2012.  “Never stop learning and share your knowledge to help build a better society.”

Jordan Saxe (’02), managing director of the Americas at NASDAQ OMX (NASDAQ: NDAQ), was the keynote speaker during the Commencement ceremony.  Saxe is responsible for leading business development efforts in international listings across all sectors. 

“Literally 10 years ago today, I sat somewhere over there pontificating about what life after college may be like,” said Saxe.

Dean Sharma took a moment during the ceremony to recognize Baldwin Delgado (’12), a Business Administration student concentrating in accounting and management information systems (MIS). Baldwin was honored during the University of Vermont’s main ceremony earlier in the morning for being one of four student recipients of the Keith M. Miser Leadership Award, recognizing outstanding service to the university.
