ISKANDAR PUTERI: The first batch of students from University of Reading Malaysia (UoRM) have graduated at the university's campus in Educity here.

The 11 students, who began their undergraduate programme in Finance and Business Management at Henley Business School Malaysia at UoRM in September 2014, received their degrees on Saturday.

During the inaugural ceremony, UoRM also awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws to Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) chief executive officer Datuk Ismail Ibrahim.
