Graduation ceremony April 2016
Michael Hanke, Vice-Rector for Studies, and the Chairman of the University Senate, Professor Stefan Güldenberg, conferred the academic degrees in the faculties of Architecture and Economics on the assembled graduates. In his welcoming speech, Michael Hanke made the following appeal to the successful students: ‘In the course of these last few years you have acquired far-ranging knowledge and skills, and in parallel to this have furthered your own personal development. These qualifications will be useful to you in your future professional careers, but society as a whole should benefit as well. Hence my appeal to you – make your mark, make your voice heard, wherever you think change is needed and you can make a difference!’
Prof. Dr. Michael Hanke
‘Creating values and maintaining composure are the real challenges with which our graduates will be faced. Then they will be in a position to make their personal contribution to their own future and the future of our society,’ stressed Hugo Dworzak, Head of the University of Liechtenstein’s Institute of Architecture and Planning, in his address.
