Graduation

During Commencement Week, each school hosts its own Ceremony — for the Business School this is the Recognition Ceremony — to individually recognize graduates for their successful completion of requirements. This event will feature a notable speaker selected by the Student Government, an elected student speaker, remarks by the Dean, and each student will be formally called to the stage and recognized for their achievement.

In addition to the Business School Recognition Ceremony, students are encouraged to participate in the Columbia University Commencement Ceremony, which is a centuries-old tradition in which the University President grants degrees en masse to graduating students from all schools, colleges, and affiliated institutions. During this ceremony, other remarkable members of the Columbia community are also recognized through the conferring of medals, awards, and honorary degrees.
