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 along with remarks from various members of the CBS community and each graduate 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.
The date of the Executive MBA Recognition Ceremony varies depending on the EMBA track, and ceremonies are held several times throughout the year. Regardless of the timing of your specific EMBA Recognition Ceremony, all graduating Columbia Business School students are invited to participate in the University Commencement ceremony.
More information on the University Commencement Ceremony will be announced shortly.
