Graduation 2016

This summer, Enagás CEO Antoni Llardén was our invited speaker at the BSE Class of 2016's graduation ceremony. He has just posted his reflections on meeting BSE students and alumni on his website:

"Although I am an engineer and am specialised in Energy, I meet professionals from the fields of economics and finance every day and consider them to be essential for the development of a strong, healthy business fabric. I regularly take part in forums and conferences, but this occasion was special because of the public I was addressing: young, diverse, full of talent and with their entire careers ahead of them, destined to become the economists who will be the leaders of our world in the near future."
