International Welcoming Party 2015
As a tradition party to welcome the new international students, International Welcoming Party 2015 was organized by International Marketing and Admission Department last 11 December in Talula lounge at the centre of Murcia. UCAM co-sponsored the party this this year and attracted close to a hundred students from different Master courses namely Master of Business Administration, European Union Studies and Human Rights, Innovation and Tourism Marketing and MBA Sports Management.
The students loved the unlimited drinks, food, sharing stories and taking photos during the party. It was a great chance and avenue for students to deepen their friendship with their classmates as they have more time to relax together outside classroom.
"I hope this party will not just create a good memory about UCAM, but also a way to create good connection among international students within the university¨ as Mr. Miguel Angel Marti Escolano, International Marketing Manager of UCAM said as the host of the event. Activities such as 'matching-game', helped to create a link among students from various courses was one of the highlights of the night.
