In December, Globe University honored graduate Hamza Akram with both an MBA degree and the Director’s Award for Excellence. The award is given at each graduation to the student who most personifies the values of scholarship, professionalism, and service.
About his recently completed academic experience, Hamza commented, “It has been a great achievement for me to pursue the master’s degree at Globe. What I learned in class I have been utilizing at work and that has helped me in my career. All of the instructors at Globe are connected in their specific fields and that helps students to understand and learn the current skills needed in business.”
However, Hamza is not finished with his education. He is enrolled in Globe’s Doctor of Business Administration program to earn his DBA. “Earning my DBA will enable me to better design strategies and policies for outstanding performance, and is another step for my career,” Hamza said.
Dr. Frank Plachecki, an instructor in the graduate program, recalls, “Hamza set the example for professionalism and passion for higher education. Faculty are fortunate to see him excel both in the classroom and in service to our student population.”
