A first-ever graduation ceremony for the University of Northern Iowa will take place this weekend — in Hong Kong. The College of Business Administration at U-N-I provides a Master of Business Administration in the Wan Chai district of Hong Kong. Several U-N-I faculty members teach an on site course that can be completed in about a year.
Forty-five students will participate in this year’s ceremony which will be held Sunday in Hong Kong. More than 60 students have graduated from the internationally-accredited program since it started in May 2003. Although new U-N-I President Benjamin Allen assumed the duties of president June fifth, retiring President Robert Koob will be on hand as his last official presidential duty.
