How many people can I attend the Graduation with?
The Graduation will take place in Piazza Maggiore, in the heart of Bologna. It will be possible for each graduate to attend with four guests. Access to the Piazza will be free; graduates will have a reserved sector, while seating for guests will be available while seats last and in an area separate from that of the graduates.


Is it necessary to participate at the Graduation to collect the diploma or can it also be received somehow at another time?
Graduation is an important moment for both the participants and the School. Attendance at the Graduation is recommended but not mandatory for obtaining the diploma. Diplomas that will not be collected during the Graduation will remain available, after the end of the event, for direct collection at Bologna Business School or upon request and at the graduate’s expense, by booking the collection.


What happens in case of bad weather for the Graduation?
In case of bad weather or any other reason or cause, BBS has the right to change location or postpone or cancel the Graduation or change the number of attendants. Under no circumstances shall BBS be held liable for any costs incurred or damages sustained by participants and accompanying persons at the Graduation or Events due to such modification, postponement, or annulment.


Will I receive a confirmation email at the end of my registration?
You will receive a confirmation email after your registration. Within a couple of days before the event, you will receive another email containing the necessary instructions for the participation of both graduates and guests.


Is there any suggested dress code?
The suggested dress code is business casual.


In what language the Graduation ceremony will be held?
The ceremony will be conducted mainly in Italian, leaving the opportunity for speakers to speak in English, with simultaneous translation into the two languages.


How will the collection and delivery of the robe and touch take place?
