Important notice:

Due to concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak, the May 9 Commencement has been canceled.  
Additional information is available here.
Although the deans and staff are extremely disappointed, the health of graduates, their families and friends, and faculty, is a top priority - and your understanding of this difficult decision is appreciated.


As in previous years, GSBS will have a professional photographer onsite to take pictures of the graduates. Each student will be provided a link to photographs (several weeks after the ceremony). You can bring your own camera or photographer for additional photo opportunities. If photos are taken as the graduate walks across the stage, please make sure the photographer returns to his/her seat quickly, enabling others to do likewise. Our goal is to allow documentation of this special event, but to maintain a clear view of the stage for the rest of the audience. Please remember to preserve the reverence of this memorable event for our graduates.
