The 2018 ceremony was held at Chijmes Hall, a heritage building in the central district of Singapore which was once a convent and orphanage. Canagasabai was proud to celebrate this special event.

Family and friends of the new graduates gathered together with Dr Sam Choon Mun, Dean of the School of Business and Management at PSB Academy and Ian Herbet, Programme Director at Loughborough University. Members of the teaching faculty from both Singapore and the UK were also in attendance.

The event was supported by the Singapore alumni group, who shared their alumni activities with the event attendees.
