Graduation Ceremony 2021

23rd September & 24th September 2021 at the International Graduate Center

Congratulations! An eventful time lies behind you. In the past months 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 very well. We are very pleased to solemnly say goodbye to all graduates of our master programs at the IGC. The graduation ceremony will take place 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.
