The next graduation ceremony takes place on December 8, 2023 at FAU WiSo, Lange Gasse. Registration is open until November 21, 2023.

The graduates sit in the front rows according to their degree program and in alphabetical order. That’s why it’s important to specify your course of study when registering for the event! Registration takes place via the Conftool. After registering on their website, you can register for the event there. The ticket will then be sent by mail to the address provided during registration. The graduates can only register themselves and buy tickets for up to four accompanying persons.

Due to room capacity, only a limited number of participants are permitted for the ceremony (160 graduates including a maximum of four accompanying persons). Once the number is reached, no more guests can be scheduled.

In order to be able to take part in the ceremony, all exams and the final paper must be graded as passed. If this is not the case, there should be another graduation ceremony in summer 2024.


Gowns and doctoral hats

A gown makes graduates particularly stand out. For this purpose, gowns (sash included) and doctoral hats (both Master’s and Bachelor’s) can be borrowed for a fee or purchased if desired. Each graduate must order their academic clothing here independently. To do this, enter the code fauwiso.

Important: Academic clothing will be delivered to you by mail. If you just want to rent them, take the enclosed information sheet and the enclosed return bag with you on the day of the event. This means you can easily return the academic clothing on site after the graduation ceremony. It is recommended to order the academic clothing at least two weeks before the graduation ceremony so that it can be delivered promptly.


Oath of the “Honorable Merchants”

The collective speaking of an oath of honorable conduct goes back to an initiative by former Harvard graduates. Today, this oath is taken by students at more than 300 institutions worldwide. Since December 2015, the WiSo has also been offering its graduates the opportunity to take this oath together before the certificates are awarded. In addition, they can confirm the oath by signing a golden book. For the 14th time, WiSo is offering its graduates the opportunity to recite this oath together after the certificates have been awarded.


Final documents

No original graduation documents will be issued at the event. The Examination Office will send these to you after successful completion.



A photographer will take photos during the event, which can then be downloaded free of charge from this website. By taking part in the event, participants declare their consent to the creation of images of themselves as part of the event and to the publication of the images by FAU/WiSo (social media, press, printed products). FAU WiSo cannot guarantee that you will not be seen in one of the images used by FAU WiSo.



FAU WiSo is pleased that the alumni association of the School of Business, Economics and Society, afwn (, is supporting the graduation celebration again. We would be very happy if the graduates would maintain contact with the department through the alumni association.


Blessing offering

On the day of the graduation ceremony, the two university communities, ESG and KHG, invite all graduates and their families to a “blessing to go”. Between 2 and 3 p.m. you can come to St. Egidien (Egidienplatz 12, near FAU WiSo) and receive a personal blessing from the student pastor Tabea Baader or the university pastor Bettina Hornung. An opportunity to pause briefly on this special day, be grateful for what has been achieved and move on strengthened. Please click here to register.
