College of Business Convocation is celebrated each academic year in May. Master's and bachelor's candidates who have earned a degree in the December prior, or who will earn a degree in May or the following August–as well as doctoral candidates who have deposited their dissertations to the Graduate College by the campus-established deadlines–are invited to participate in Business Convocation.

In addition to Business Convocation, a campus-wide Commencement ceremony is held.
