Attending your EMBA graduation is free of charge and includes guest tickets, your robes and other ceremonial attire, food and drinks.  Even though it is free of charge, we advise you to only register for guest tickets that you will use so as to be mindful of cost and waste and to continue to be a force for positive change.

Everyone who has registered for the EMBA graduation ceremony will be allowed to have tickets for up to 3 guests.

No. If you cancel your registration, your guest tickets will automatically be cancelled. 

No. Additional tickets will be released if they are available, but they cannot be shared or distributed to other graduates. Each graduate is allowed 3 guest tickets and accommodations are based on some graduates not needing all of their tickets. Tickets do not have a monetary value.

For those that have never attended a graduation ceremony, it is a festive celebration of the graduates’ achievements and completion of their programme degree. Faculty/staff and student speeches make up the majority of the programme. Diplomas will be received on stage and there will be an introduction into the alumni network.  Socializing and celebratory drinks with guests and fellow graduates will take place following the ceremony.

We order food that will accommodate the majority of students which includes a vegetarian option. If you have any specific concerns, please contact the Graduation Team directly.

A typical graduation ceremony can host thousands of graduates and guests and relies on careful organization to ensure that there is enough space, catering, materials ordered for graduates and guests, along with the program of the ceremony maintaining an order. This is a significant logistical challenge, and it means that late registration is unfortunately NOT possible under any circumstances. Please make sure you register as soon as you see the first invitation if you would like to participate. 

There can be no exceptions to this rule. It is not possible to register late even if you missed the registration due to extenuating circumstances, personal difficulties, illness, family emergencies, or any other reason. We are very sorry if this is disappointing, but as a result we try to communicate about your graduation as early as possible – before you even finish your studies – to ensure that you can book your attendance in good time. 

If you have made a mistake when filling in your information for the graduation ceremony, you can contact us at the email below with the correct information up to six weeks before the ceremony. The Graduation Team will adjust it for you.

Yes!  We strive to accommodate all of our students’ and guests’ needs.  Please email us at the email address below with your specific needs or requests. You can also look on the venue website where your event will take place to view the accommodations the venue has in place. 

All tickets with QR codes will be sent the week of your graduation to the email you registered with.  Guest tickets will also be sent at this time with separate QR codes.  You can download and directly forward individual tickets to your guests prior to the ceremony date.  Please be sure to check your spam folder if you do not receive your tickets and contact the Graduation Team at the email below to have them resent. If you’re email has changed or is a student email that no longer works, please email us immediately to update your contact information in our system. 


Our goal when choosing a venue is that every registered graduate will be able to bring a certain number of guests to celebrate their achievement. The exact number of guests is determined before the registration opens. You will receive this information ahead of time so that you can make arrangements to invite your guests. Sometimes additional guest tickets become available after registration closes. You will be notified if these circumstances become available. 

Only registered graduates attending the face-to-face graduation ceremony can order guest tickets. If your friend is not attending, they cannot order guest tickets. 

If your friend has registered and purchased guest tickets but needs to cancel their participation, they have the option to resell/giveaway their tickets to graduates participating in the same ceremony or release their tickets back into the system. The graduate is responsible for emailing any tickets or information to the new owner of the tickets. The graduation team is not responsible for this correspondence. 

Depending on demand and availability, we might be able to offer additional guest tickets. This will be decided after the registration has closed. Those who registered will be informed about a possible extra ticket order by email. Please be aware that an extra ticket sale is not guaranteed.

While graduation is a celebratory family event, we do not consider it particularly child-friendly due to the ceremonies requiring guests to remain seated for up to two hours at a time in some cases. That being said, children are still welcome to attend. If children do come, those age 2 and under do not need their own ticket for the ceremony as they are expected to sit on an adult’s lap. All children age 3 and over will need their own guest ticket. Children under the age of 18 should not be left unaccompanied at any point whilst in the venue.

Yes! We will always try our hardest to accommodate guests with any special requirements, but it is always helpful if we can make arrangements in advance.

All of our graduation venues are wheelchair accessible. If your guest requires an aisle seat or to be near a doorway for medical reasons, this can also be arranged.

Please contact us at the email address below at least two weeks before the ceremony so that we can make the best possible arrangements.
