graduates found worthy in academics and character to face the job market. This

smiles on the faces of these graduates on November 8th 2019, could

After burning the mid night
candles and overcoming the challenges of recent times amidst the crisis
affecting the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon, these students
finally turned another page in their career and promised to uphold the values
of BUIB wherever they find themselves.

paramount to these graduates as they enter another chapter of life.
