IDEC celebrates the end of the 2008-2009 academic year

On June 18th a cocktail party was held to celebrate the end of the 2008-09 academic year for masters and postgraduate programmes at IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra. The evening was held in Plaça Guttenberg, on UPF\'s Communications Campus.

Over 500 participants and teaching staff enjoyed an evening of entertainment. For many of the participants this event was a goodbye to their colleagues as once the academic course is over they will be returning to their countries and cities of origin to continue with their professional activities.

The evening was accompanied by music from the Jazz Nervi quintet, one of whose members is Claudio Nervi, a former student and current lecturer on the Master in Digital Arts.

During this event some participants from different countries (Argentina, Peru, Chile, Uruguay, Belgium and Ecuador, among others) described their experiences during their year in Barcelona and at IDEC. In addition, they all expressed their desire to become members of the ten international chapters of alumni which UPF has around Latin America, as well as creating new ones. At the same time, nearly 200 participants registered for the Alumni Association in response to an invitation by its president, Albert Figueiras.
