Welcome Back Event
A Welcome Back event was held on March 15, 2018 to honour the six recently returned alumni who graduated from Australian Universities with a Master degree.
The graduates were specialised in a variety of sectors including information technology, public health, strategic public relations, human rights and business administration. All the graduates presented on their in-Australia experiences including their academic environment, facilities, learning methods, scholarship benefits and visions for the future.
Senior representatives from the Governments of Australia and Mongolia attended the event, congratulating the graduates and wishing them every success in their future contributions to Mongolia’s development.
Mr. John Langtry, Australian Ambassador to Mongolia, also congratulated the graduates on their commitment to learning, sharing and networking, and encouraged them to actively apply their newly acquired knowledge and skills gained from their scholarship experience. He further highlighted the opportunities available as an Australia Awards alumnus, including the Global Alumni network, the local Alumni network (Mozzies) and their associated professional development opportunities, the Women’s leadership program and its associated activities, such as the community development project he attended just prior to the WB meeting at National Emergency Management Agency.
Mr. Bulgantamir, representative from the Ministry of Finance also congratulated the graduates and reminded the graduates from Government organizations to embrace their newly acquired knowledge and skills to the benefit of the government and as per the Subsidiary Arrangement signed between the GOM and GOA. He encouraged the graduates, who were previously working for private companies, to find opportunities where people with overseas skills and qualifications are highly regarded and actively utilized.
The graduates were then reminded of their reintegration plans, and asked to review and update their plans based on their new knowledge, skills, workplace needs and environments.
At the end of the event the graduates had been fully briefed about the post scholarship alumni activities available to them. All the graduates were enthusiastic, motivated and willing to implement their newly acquired knowledge and skills in their professional areas.
