Among the graduates from NYIT-Vancouver’s Class of 2012 is Ravi Muti who recently won a “Top 25 Under 25” award from the Surrey Board of Trade in recognition of his entrepreneurship and leadership skills.
“I hope to become an influential entrepreneur who does things that have never been done,” said Muti.  “And I’ll keep going until this is accomplished.”
Muti’s start-up company works with local and global businesses to market to their customers through online, real-time, and mobile marketing applications. 
“Entrepreneurship is exciting, and I have a passion for it because it brings out my creativity and an innovative mindset,” he said.
Ravi’s classmate, student speaker Yekaterina Formicheva, said lessons learned from students who already run successful businesses will be invaluable as she works toward her goal of opening her own educational consulting agency. 
“In every field, demand is increasing for a new class of business people, designers, engineers  ̶  for people who can perform specialized tasks,” said Guiliano, “and more importantly, for people who can synthesize ideas and create solutions to address real-world challenges.”
As a 21st-century global institution, he added, NYIT is committed to education that helps students leverage technology, solve real-world problems, and cultivate interdisciplinary mindsets.
NYIT-Vancouver’s graduation follows NYIT’s 51st commencement, which celebrated 3,325 graduates on Sunday, May 20, 2012, at the Old Westbury, New York campus. NYIT also has campuses in the Middle East, China, and Manhattan.
