Ethan GiffordOn Friday 20 October the Conferment of Doctoral Degrees was held in the Congress Hall at the Swedish Exhibition Centre. It was a solemn and joyous ceremony when 148 doctors and 13 honorary doctors received their doctoral degrees. One of the doctors who attended the Conferment was Ethan Gifford at the Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the School of Business, Economics and Law who defended his dissertation in April 2017.

The ceremony started at 15 and was followed by a grand banquette with entertainment before the dancing began.

- The evening was a fun mix of art, dance, poems, and music, with an inspiring theme (freedom of expression) and a great banquette! Definitely a night to remember! says Ethan.

The Conferment of Doctoral Degrees is the University’s largest ceremonial occasion and is primarily intended for those who have recently completed their doctoral studies and defended their doctoral thesis.
