Hats off, Graduates!

Graduates of the Business School celebrate the successful completion of their academic career.

Between melancholy, joy and euphoria: last weekend, the University of Mannheim, Business School, bid farewell to its graduates of the study programs business administration and economic and business education. This year, around 400 Bachelor and 200 Master graduates, most of them accompanied by their families, showed up to receive their diploma and a personal congratulation from Dean Professor Dr. Dieter Truxius.

After a photo session in the palace courtyard Ehrenhof, where the graduates had assembled in caps and gowns, the guests gathered in the festival tent. In front of the baroque palace and accompanied by a string quartet, the graduates received their diplomas, ceremonial speeches were held and prize holders were honored.

This year, the keynote speaker at the Bachelor graduation ceremony was Dr. Alexander von Frankenberg, Managing Director of the High-Tech Gründerfonds and alumnus of the Business School. During the Master graduation ceremony, Isanthe Heberger-Demel, Executive Managing Partner of HEBERGER Holding GmbH & Co. KG, gave a speech. Adina Letzguß, student teacher at the vocational School 1 in Ingolstadt, bid farewell to the economic and business education graduates. All speakers wished the graduates their best and gave them personal advice for their career.

Outstanding graduates received special prizes during the graduation ceremony. The Business School thanks all foundations and donators of the prizes for their generous support of the students.
