Rollins MBA Touts 93 Percent Graduation Rate At Commencement On April 30, 2011

The Rollins MBA announced today that commencement ceremonies for the 2011 graduating class took place at the Warden Arena at the Harold & Ted Alfond Sports Complex. The commencement honored graduates of the school’s Early Advantage MBA, Professional MBA and Corporate MBA programs.

With an impressive 93 percent graduation rate across all programs, the latest Rollins MBA class graduated on April 30, 2011. The school attributes its graduation success to its team-structured learning environment, which includes student groups and cohorts that foster a supporting learning environment and powerful life-long connections.

In addition, Early Advantage MBA graduates are seeing salary offers of almost five percent higher last year’s class as they move into the workforce. These graduates pursue an MBA with little or no work experience and with this targeted program are able to jump start their careers.

“This group of students has really impressed me with their dedication and commitment, they have taken a very important step in developing their careers and we know that the skills they take with them will help them build on their success throughout their careers,” said Craig McAllaster, dean of the Rollins MBA.

This year’s commencement address was given by Rick Goings, Chairman and CEO of Tupperware Brands Corporation. Goings is also a trustee of Rollins College, participant of the World Economic Forum (WEF), member of the Board of Executive Advisors for the Yale School of Management’s Chief Executive Leadership Institute and member of the Florida Council of 100.  During his commencement speech, Mr. Goings inspired the graduating class with to live their life and careers beyond borders.
