Over 200 graduates received the academic degree “Bachelor of Arts” at the graduation ceremony on August 25, 2018. Cologne Business School invited about 800 guests to the Maritim hotel and provided an entertaining programme with official speeches. The evening was devoted to the theme of “time” which ran like a thread through the ceremony.
CBS President, Prof Dr Elisabeth Fröhlich gave the opening speech and paid a special tribute to the achievements of the graduates and the exchange students from Indonesia and Taiwan who received a double degree at Cologne Business School and their home university. She wished them all the best for the future and closed her speech with: “We hope that in the future – and please, don’t see this as a step back – that you will always find your way back to your CBS.”
Afterwards, time also played an important role as the bachelor graduates decorated in gowns and caps received their certificates from their deans on the stage. This special moment was captured with cameras.
