The Graduation this year will take place in Piazza Maggiore, in the heart of Bologna, where anyone can attend the ceremony.

The awarding of diplomas is an important moment both for the participants and for the School. Graduation attendance is recommended but is not mandatory for obtaining a diploma. The diplomas that will not be withdrawn during the Graduation will remain available, after the end of the event, for the direct collection at Bologna Business School or they will be sent on request and at the expense of the graduate, by scheduling a pickup.
