Gaudeamus igitur!

MCI Graduation Ceremony

The graduation ceremony is the highlight and official conclusion of an MCI degree program and takes place in the presence of family members and top representatives from business, science, administration and politics.

The ceremony includes the presentation of the graduates, taking the oaths and the conferral of the academic degrees.

Each year, hundreds of students become graduates at our graduation ceremonies, which take place in the magnificent Dogana of Congress Innsbruck.

The graduation ceremony is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication by our students, giving family, friends and staff the opportunity to congratulate our new graduates and celebrate their achievements.
