Convocation—April 22, 2022

This year, graduates from all programs within BYU’s Marriott School of Business will attend one of two in-person convocation sessions to be held at the Marriott Center. All students who graduate during the 2021-22 academic year are invited to participate in the April 2022 graduation ceremonies. Family and friends are welcome to come and cheer as we honor each BYU Marriott graduate.

During this momentous occasion, we will be hearing from Liz WisemanNew York Times bestselling author, an executive advisor, and BYU Marriott alum. After her address, graduating students’ names will be read as they walk across the stage to be recognized and receive their diploma cover. The in-person ceremony will last approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. The actual diploma will be mailed to graduates five to eight weeks after graduation.

We hope you enjoyed the food, fun, and fireworks.
