At the ceremony, the President of IUMW Professor Dr Hamzah A. Rahman congratulated the students and shared his vision for the institution to be "an exemplary and innovative international higher education institution renowned for its graduates".
He added, "The MBA programme was one of the first postgraduate programmes that we developed. Numerous challenges in the form of quality delivery were overcome with students/members' feedback, support from both IUMW's parent universities and our committed staff. Most importantly, we had and still have, support from our beloved student members."
A representative of the batch of graduates also expressed his gratitude for the support from the institution. "Here at IUMW, we have received a great education through our fine administration and lecturers." He thanked all peers, lecturers, administrative staff as well as the janitors and guards who continued to ensure a smooth and comfortable study environment for students there.

The ceremony ended with the singing of the national anthems of Malaysia and Wales.
IUMW has developed a series of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that focus on outcomes over inputs and to pursue technologies and innovations that address students' needs and enable greater personalisation of the learning experience. One of the first postgraduate programmes we have developed to achieve the above vision is the MBA programme.
