Commencement for the bachelor's and master's programmes of the Faculty of Business and Economics

At the end of every semester, there is an official graduation ceremony for students in the auditorium of Göttingen University in Wilhelmsplatz. In addition to speeches by faculty members and alumni and the awarding of graduation certificates with musical accompaniment, the best graduates in the fields of business administration, economics, business education and information systems are awarded the Florenz-Sartorius Prize.

Once a year (within the framework of the celebration in Spring), this prize is also awarded for an outstanding doctoral thesis in the fields of business administration, information systems, and business education; and another for the best dissertation from the fields of economics, statistics, econometrics, and economic and social history. Recipients each receive 1000 Euro funded by Sartorius AG of Göttingen. The company is an internationally leading provider of laboratory and process technology in the segments of biotechnology and mechatronics.

Due to the Corona Pandemic, the graduation ceremony on 12 June 2020 unfortunately has to be cancelled.

The next graduation ceremony probably (this depends on the further course of the pandemic) will take place on Friday, 27 November 2020 in the auditorium at Wilhelmsplatz. The ceremony commences at 14:00.
