Award ceremony - Graduation Day Our Graduation Days offer an opportunity to bid farewell to our graduates. Bachelor’s and Master’s Graduation Day Twice a year, the Graduation Days take place at the University of St.Gallen (HSG). In a festive ceremony, graduates are handed their degree certificates and are officially accepted into HSG Alumni, the University’s association of former students. In addition, the best Master’s graduates of each major are awarded prizes. At the subsequent aperitif, contacts are established and toasts are drunk to a successful future. Social programme During the day, visitors are offered a varied social programme. Various guided tours of the old town and the Abbey District (only Bachelor Graduation Day) are on offer, as are guided tours of the artworks in the HSG. Combined, these tours provide an exciting insight into the life of the City of St.Gallen and the University. The next Bachelor’s Graduation Day will be celebrated on Saturday, 30 September 2017. Graduates at the Master’s Level – including the Courses in Business Education – will receive their degree certificates on Saturday, 7 October 2017.
