Business & Entrepreneurship Department Celebrates Graduates

On May 27th, 2020, the Business and Entrepreneurship Department at Chatham University held a virtual ceremony in recognition of graduates. During the pandemic, all activities at Chatham were put on hold for the past spring and summer semester, including graduation ceremonies. In lieu of graduation being canceled, the Business and Entrepreneurship Department wanted to make sure to give their graduates proper recognition for their hard work and accomplishments. This virtual ceremony was meant to recognize recent Business and Entrepreneurship Department students and give faculty the chance to give students some words of wisdom for their future endeavors.

In attendance were department chair Professor James Pierson, faculty Dr. Won Hyung Lee, Dr. Deborah DeLong, & Dr. Mark Haney, adjunct faculty Bill Mooney and Steve Lackey, and students Mai Nguyen (MBA Grad Student) and Ronisha Payne (MBA Grad Student).
