In an emotional and vibrant ceremony, the June 2024 Class of EGADE Business School at Tecnológico de Monterrey, including the on-site programs in Monterrey and online programs, celebrated the completion of their postgraduate studies with great joy and pride.

The graduation ceremony took place on January 22 at the Monterrey site of EGADE Business School, and was broadcast live via, allowing family, friends, and loved ones to be part of this significant event.

On this occasion, 154 master's degrees and 2 doctoral degrees were awarded to graduates from various cities in Mexico and nine countries, including Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, USA and Venezuela.

By program, the graduates included 103 from the EGADE MBA and EGADE MBA Online; 5 from the EGADE – UNC Charlotte MBA in Global Business & Strategy; 44 from the Master in Finance and Master in Finance Online; 2 from the Master in Business Analytics; and 2 from the Doctorate in Administrative Sciences.

Honors for excellence were awarded to master's graduates who achieved the highest GPA in their programs.

This select group included:

  • Alejandro Castellanos Peña and Alma Luz González Pedraza, from the EGADE MBA.
  • René Rodolfo Valle, from the EGADE MBA Online.
  • Jorge Abraham González Núñez, from the EGADE – UNC Charlotte MBA in Global Business & Strategy.
  • José Alejandro Mariotto Armas, from the Master in Finance, who also achieved the highest GPA of his class.

Additionally, Hugo Alberto Álvarez Pérez and Beatriz Adriana González Cavazos, as graduates of the Doctorate in Administrative Sciences, received an institutional medal in addition to their academic degree.

Germán Canale Segovia, co-founder and CEO of Aguafría; Juan Pablo Murra, Rector for Higher Education at Tecnológico de Monterrey; Horacio Arredondo, Dean of EGADE Business School; and Eva Guerra, Academic Associate Dean of EGADE Business School, presided over the graduation in Monterrey.

In his inspiring speech as the guest speaker, Canale Segovia invited the graduates to live with fullness, satisfaction, and transcendence, dedicating themselves to what they love and rejecting useless distractions.

“Fall in love madly and without limits with the causes, ideals, and people you choose. It won’t always be pleasant, but it will always be meaningful. Forgive yourself when things don’t go as expected and also forgive others. Work for the benefit of those causes and people with dedication, and live with fullness and satisfaction,” the executive emphasized.

Celeste Griselle Contreras, speaking on behalf of her class, urged the graduates to remain open to continuous learning, adapt, innovate, and lead in their respective fields, driving the changes that society and organizations require.

“Be generous in sharing answers and teaching the way. Let us be the leaders that our country and the world need. There are no small projects or tasks; everything adds up and has an impact. Believe in yourselves and your ability to make a difference. Curiosity and the willingness to teach are essential pillars for building a better future,” expressed the graduate of the EGADE – UNC Charlotte MBA in Global Business & Strategy and Trade Compliance Senior Manager at Carrier.

Before administering the oath, Murra urged the new EXATEC EGADE to maintain their intellectual curiosity, value questions more than answers, and educate themselves continuously.

“Be among the nonconformists who never stopped being students. Be an example of that hallmark that has distinguished so many EXATEC for decades. Learn from the example of others, from the Tec community, from other nonconformists who have gone out to transform realities. And, in time, be mentors and examples for future generations,” said the Rector.

The ceremony at EGADE Business School's Monterrey site will be followed by graduations in Guadalajara and Mexico City on June 26 and 28, respectively.
