Graduation & Commencement

2022 Commencement Welcome

Karen Sedatole
Karen Sedatole, Interim Dean, Emory University's Goizueta Business School

Dear Graduates, Families, Friends and Alumni:

I'm delighted to invite you to a momentous event - Goizueta Business School's Commencement Ceremony. I am so proud and humbled to celebrate alongside you as we welcome the newest graduates of our esteemed institution, and the newest members of our Goizueta alumni family.

This year’s class has been faced with challenges like no other. Their resilience, resolve, and commitment to our school and overall community has been truly remarkable. Our Goizueta graduates will be joining an elite club. Our school's programs are selective and demanding. And our expectations for student integrity and leadership high. Earning a Goizueta degree requires sustained effort and determination. Although the effort is monumental, I am confident our graduates will find the rewards to be well worth it.

We believe business is a vehicle capable of delivering meaningful, lasting impact on society. In this graduating class, I see so many principled leaders ready to solve the biggest problems of our future. I cannot wait to see where they go next, the ways they will continue to thrive, and how they will leave their mark on the world around us.

We invite you to join us in this important milestone. We look forward to celebrating our graduates and their achievements together.

FAQ

Tickets are required for the University Ceremony on the Quad at 8:30am on Monday, May 9th. You will input your guest names and email addresses in MarchingOrder and the system will send them their tickets. Tickets are not required for any of the Goizueta events, but you will complete a registration form in MarchingOrder where we will gather the number of guests you intend to bring, whether any of your guests need special seating due to mobility concerns, and other pertinent information for graduation day.

All graduates will have their diplomas mailed to the diploma address listed on file in OPUS.  If no diploma address is listed, the diploma will be mailed to the permanent address.  Please see the University Registrar's website for additional details.  Students will receive a diploma cover at their Diploma Ceremony (this is the big blue folder you see in everyone's graduation photos!).

Yes!  Grad Images will be on site to take photos of all graduates.

Emory's Plan Your Visit page on the Commencement website has area hotels and restaurants listed.

The University and Goizueta registration forms will both permit you to input special seating needs. All Goizueta diploma ceremonies will take place in the Woodruff P.E. Center, which has bleacher seating. Graduates can request special seating-area tickets for their guests with mobility concerns or other conditions that would prevent access to bleacher seating. While the special-seating areas in the WoodPEC are situated for ease of mobility, the arena is about 100 yards from the building entrance. The special seating areas are located on the gym floor, off to the side of the bleachers and behind the graduate seating area. These seats are not closest to the stage nor do they provide the "best view" - rather they are accessible for those who would be unable to climb onto a bleacher.

If you graduate in August or December, you are considered part of the next graduating class.  This means that your name will appear in the publication list the following May and you will also be considered for graduation honors and awards at that time.
