The big day is nearly here – the day that many current Texas MBA students walk across the stage to receive their diplomas and join more than 18,000 others as Texas MBA alumni.
We invite you to join us in congratulating all members of the Class of 2012 at the Texas MBA Convocation this Friday, May 18, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in Gregory Gymnasium. Students from all of our programs will be individually recognized at the ceremony. The keynote address will be delivered by Robert Zlotnik, President and CEO of StarTex Power, and also a member of the Texas MBA class of 1980.
If you are not able to make it to the convocation, you can watch the live web stream during the event (you will need Real Audio to watch).
In addition to the Texas MBA Convocation, The University of Texas at Austin also holds the university-wide commencement for all spring graduates. The university-wide commencement will be Saturday, May 19, at 7:00 p.m. in front of the Tower. See the University Commencement website for more information.
The official Twitter hashtag for all university graduation events is #UTGrad.
Congratulations to the class of 2012 — we are very proud of you for all your accomplishments!
