MSA Students Inspire at 2016 Graduation

On Saturday 9 April 2016, over a thousand students from the 60 different nationalities represented on campus received their MSA degrees in Johannesburg and began their journey towards making their mark on the world.

The celebrations commemorated the 19th and 20th graduation ceremonies held by MSA since we were founded by Monash University in 2001. The initial ceremony for Higher Certificate in Higher Education Studies, the School of Health Sciences and the School of Social Science was followed by the School of Information Technology and the School of Business and Economics ceremony. Each ceremony was a joyful and prestigious occasion, as we proudly celebrated the achievements of our graduates along with their families and friends.

The highlight of each ceremony was undoubtedly the passionate and heartfelt speeches delivered by our MSA student speakers; Lisa Sidambe (from Zimbabwe), Zahra Kaba (from Tanzania), Steve Velcev (from South Africa) and Yamikani Katunga (from Zimbabwe). Each of the student speakers have consistently shown excellence in their academia, their leadership skills and in community engagement during their time at MSA, and their speeches reflected their ambitious and aspirational mindsets. We congratulate all our newly graduated members of the MSA Alumni community, and wishes them the best in the next exciting phase of their lives.
