Diplomas are handed out to MS and MBA graduates at Simon Business School's 2022 commencement ceremony


With the collective help of our entire faculty and staff, 2022 commencement was an event our graduates will forever remember.

This was the second year of rapidly shifting plans and guidelines in order to provide students with a safe in-person celebration, and it was worth the effort. Through the combined efforts of the Simon Commencement Committee, staff in the OSE and Benet CMC, Administration, Simon Technology Services, Marketing, the Registrar, and the Undergraduate office, who worked tirelessly to ensure a perfect day for our graduates.

By the numbers.

Degrees were conferred on 154 MBA candidates and 322 graduates from Simon’s MS programs. More than 230 undergraduate business majors received their diplomas in the Undergraduate Business Diploma Ceremony.
