Alumni return to guest lecture

05 July 2016

We were delighted to welcome back two of our alumni to deliver special guest lectures to our current students...

Nothing makes us happier at IMI than seeing our alumni succeed...

We were therefore delighted to welcome back two of our alumni - who have forged successful careers in very different fields - to deliver guest lectures to our students.

Alexandru (Alex) Gavriliu from Romania studied for his Postgraduate Diploma with us back in 2005 and now works as a Portfolio Manager for Internos Global Investors based in Germany.

More recent graduate, Portuguese Daniel Vareta completed his BA (Hons) in International Hotel & Tourism Management with us in 2011 and now works as a Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) specialist for local Swiss technology firm Worldsites.

(Both these graduates proving that a hospitality degree can lead you on to a wide variety of career opportunities in many different sectors.)

Alex worked with our BA students and delivered a lecture on the challenges of developing new shopping centres in the age of the digital revolution. Daniel meanwhile took our MBA students through a crash course in SEO and its importance in giving companies a competitive edge in the digital market.

Both lectures were highly engaging and our current students responded really well to interacting with people who had been in their place in the not-too-distant past.

We would like to thank both Alex and Daniel for taking the time to come and visit us and we hope to welcome them, and many other of our alumni, back to IMI very soon..
