On August 20th, a festive ceremony was held in the grand ballroom of the Maritim Hotel to bid farewell to this year’s CBS graduates. More than 1,000 guests filled the beautifully decorated hall.
After a champagne reception the guests were then welcomed by the university’s president, Prof. Dr. habil. Elisabeth Fröhlich and CEO, Prof. Dr. Florian Hummel.
Along with the awards ceremony, in which graduates in traditional caps and gowns received their diplomas, live stage acts provided for an exciting atmosphere. Magician Tom Duval enchanted guests with spellbinding moments, and performances by singer Laura Schulze and Deejay Plus provided for musical entertainment.
The climax of the event was the traditional throwing of the caps, for which all graduates gathered on stage.
At the ensuing after-show party, attendees danced and celebrated into the early morning hours.
