Graduation Ceremony 2020

17th September & 18th September 2020 at the International Graduate Center

Congratulations! An eventful time lies behind you. In the past few years you have learned a lot at the IGC, developed yourself further, made new friends and qualified yourself for upcoming challenges in your professional life. You have also mastered one or the other stressful and exhausting phase well and we are therefore very pleased to solemnly say goodbye to all graduates of the nine masters programs at the IGC. The graduation ceremony will take place this year at the event hall of the International Graduate Center. The ceremony concludes with the hat-throwing tradition as a sign of the newly acquired academic titles. As a reminder of this joyful moment, professional photos are taken that will remain, even if some graduates go out into the world afterwards. We are happy to have accompanied you on your way and to celebrate this joyful day with you.
