The Instituto de Banca y Comercio (IBC) this past weekend graduated more than 9,000 students from across Puerto Rico who achieved their goal of earning degrees that “will open a world of opportunities in the job market,” school President Guillermo Nigaglioni said.

IBC — licensed by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools — offers diplomas and associate’s degrees across a variety of fields, including cosmetology, healthcare, business, information technology, culinary arts and industrial trades.

During the graduation ceremony at the Puerto Rico Convention Center, 10 outstanding students — one from each IBC campus — received the “President’s Award” for “overcoming challenges and adversities to successfully completing their academic goal, thus becoming an example for others,” he said.

In his message to the graduating class, Nigaglioni credited IBC students for giving life to the school’s recent motto “You must move.”

“Students just like you, who through your testimony helped us to carry the message of the importance of personal and professional improvement through education,” he said. “So both you and your family should feel very proud today. Because you are among those who decided to put a positive spin on your life and recognized that to achieve you dreams, you must move.”

The recent graduation cycle pushed the number of IBC alumni to more than 90,000. IBC is a member institution of Eduk Group, which focuses on meeting the needs of Hispanic students and is the largest provider of Spanish language higher education in the United States.
