Graduation Ceremony: and now we change the world!
The 18th and 19th of October 2018 our fellows from the December 2017 Master Edition attended the Final Exam and were awarded their Diploma at the Polo Didattico of Rome.
The students’ final exam consisted in a group project work that was presented by the fellows and evaluated by the Committee, presided by Social Change School’s President Marco Crescenzi and composed by:
Alessio Di Carlo, Master PMC in Project Management for International Cooperation Director and CooperAction ONLUS Vice-President;
Filippo Ungaro, Master FRAME in Fundraising Management in the NGOs Director and Director of Communications, Campaigning and Volunteers at Save the Children Italia;
Lodovico Mariani, Master HOPE in Humanitarian Operations in Emergencies Director and Finance and Administration Director at Amref Health Africa Italy.
“After dedicating many hours of work on the project work, our fellows are now starting a moment that will see them looking for a training period or entry point with our support, to keep moving on with their professional path and consolidating the skills and knowledge they have acquired during the Master” commented Tirso Puig, Head of the Career Development Service and Master HOPE Coordinator.
During the second day, fellows received their Diploma and had the chance to share their impressions and feelings about the year of Master. Students particularly appreciated the environment inside the Master, the staff for their support and presence and the opportunity they had to learn and constantly improve.
Starting a Master with Social Change School is an important choice, that can turn around both your own life and the one of the people you will meet. It is a choice taken to pursue dreams and vision of a better world, by taking up challenges, hours of studying and tough exams, by challenging yourself and other people.
The experience was intense for both students and staff of Social Change School: being witnesses of the growth and change in the lives of the fellows enriches and fills of pride the School, every single time. These were the words of Cinzia D’Intino, Head of Didactics, who followed closely the path of the students during the year: “Completing this path with the presentation of the students’ project works is always a great satisfaction. I wish them all to preserve their passion for this job and I thank them for the mutual personal and professional growth”.
Now that the Didactic part of the Master is over, we can’t wait to see our students put everything they have learnt during the Master into practice and to celebrate their success in the Nonprofit sector.
