Graduates have to be dressed in DARK colours, elegant dress code

For other attendees, there is no formal dress code. However, you are advised to wear what suits to the event you are going to. For example:

– For business meetings such as the Annual meeting, the Annual Dinner, panel discussions, meeting with corporate partner, a business attire is advised;
– For the Graduation festivities the dress code is elegant

Official graduation clothing for the ceremony will be provided by the Graduate School of Management.

The GSOM has decided to keep the graduation ceremony in style without graduation gowns, instead a scarf will be provided. Thus respecting the dark colours dress code is important.

Yes, changes can be made until registration closes.

Therefore, the person attending the event must be the same one that appears on the register.

Everyone in the CEMS Community can attend the CEMS Annual Events. Meetings: Several governance meetings are opened only to respective stakeholders (Executive Board, Alumni Association Board and Local Committees, Communication Directors, Programme Managers, LBCG and MCB Committees, Student Board). Graduation Ceremony: The Graduation Ceremony is on a first registered, first seated basis to graduates and their guests and the Academic Community. All other social events, parties and the Sunday Brunch are open to all Community members.

Since we have a limited number of seats in the location where the Graduation Ceremony will take place, Graduates and official guests must have priority. If there are seats available at the end of the registration period students may be able to enter the graduation ceremony. They can of course join the ceremony as an official guest, registered in the system, and the Graduation party.

Bring your confirmation e-mail which states that you have paid for the dinner and/or party and any further e-mails from the organisation regarding changes.

Every graduands can bring up to 2 guests.

Our experience has shown that many students sign up for graduation activities and decide finally not to come. This creates problems for the organisation but especially it blocks places for those graduands who would genuinely like to attend. If you can not validate your registration before deadline of 20 days, and your registration is cancelled, you can come back at any time up to the registration deadline.
