About the Ceremony

Fisher College hosts a special MBLE Pre-Commencement Ceremony to recognize MBLE students for their accomplishments and successes. Participation in the event does not equate to satisfying degree requirements and graduating. The ceremony celebrates the Master of Business in Logistics and Engineering Students only. The ceremony itself consists of student and faculty award presentations. Students will not receive a diploma at this ceremony; that occurs at the separate formal OSU Commencement ceremony on Sunday, December 20st, 2015. Details about OSU Commencement are at the bottom of this page.
