College of Business Convocation is celebrated each academic year in May. Master’s and Bachelor’s candidates who have earned a degree in the December prior, or who will earn a degree in May or the following August–as well as Doctoral candidates who have deposited their dissertations to the Graduate College by the campus-established deadlines–are invited to participate in Business Convocation.

In addition to Business Convocation, a campuswide Commencement ceremony is held. Click here to learn more about the campuswide Commencement ceremony.
