Doctoral Program

Festive Graduation Ceremony

Seven WHU Doctoral Candidates celebrated the completion of their Doctoral studies. In the Stadthalle Vallendar, this year's graduates received their well-deserved graduation certificates and celebrated the joyful occasion in the presence of families and friends.

In his welcoming remarks, Professor Dr. Markus Rudolf, Dean of WHU, spoke about the future of Europe and addressed graduates with these words: “Liberties are not created through boundaries.” He encouraged the graduates to go out into Europe and into the world. His remarks were followed by an inspiring speech by Dr. Rudolf Staudigl, President and CEO of Wacker Chemie AG.

Rounding out the day's festivities were personal remarks by a respresentative of the Doctoral students as well as musical performances by further graduates and students. The graduation ceremonies were followed by a ball held for all graduates in the Rhein-Mosel-Halle in Koblenz.
