As the sun set on their academic journey, the graduates’ walk became a great moment to celebrate their dedication, determination, and their dreams. Each step they took across the stage was a manifestation of the late nights, the heart-wrenching challenges, and the moments of pure joy. Their laughter, tears, and shared experiences resonated in every step as a reminder of the incredible bonds forged through the obstacles and triumphs of their educational journey. The graduates’ walk was more than just a symbolic crossing and a moment to celebrate their educational milestone with their family, it was a bridge between their achievements and their limitless potential, a moment of transition that brought them closer to the exciting unwritten pages that await them.


Eszter Szarka Global Master in Human Resources Management
“Thank you to all the professors, for showing us what our roots are, and how to grow them. Thank you to all the classmates, who planted new roots in us. Thanks to Rome Business School for teaching us to see always the opportunity in things. Thank you to the friends who never let us lose hope. Thank you to our family, who were the ones giving us the roots in the first place, and encouraging us to be better day by day. Last but not least, let’s thank ourselves, for taking the risk and the challenge of coming here, while bringing the best out of everything.”
Giuseppe Scordamaglia Executive Master in Human Resources Management
"Someone close to me nine years ago told me: «Any challenge, obstacle or opportunity is best met with the strength of a team, a network that can be family, friends or people known in certain environments.» It was finally clear after my experience at Rome Business School, a year during which we grew and understood the importance of the collective over the individual. It is not just a place to get a Master's, but a real hub where we come into contact with new realities, acquire new mental approaches and develop our skills to put them at the service of the world."
Marcus Paul International MBA
“We believe that from challenges also come opportunities. The opportunity to solve problems at a scale and speed previously not possible. By adding context, perspective, and our experience, we will gain insight, knowledge, and wisdom. This is how we will build a better world. The Rome Business School has prepared us to better navigate, manage and succeed in a rapidly evolving global environment to seek out, identify, and capitalize on new opportunities. They have given us new insight, new knowledge and, hopefully more wisdom. What will YOU do with all this?”

The Symbolic Graduation Cap Toss

The tradition of throwing hats at the Graduation Ceremony, also known as the “cap toss”, is a symbolic gesture that marks the end of the academic journey. As the tassels were moved from one side of the cap to the other after the Graduate’s Walk , a surge of excitement filled the Auditorium, after the countdown, the caps were tossed into the air, in a timeless rite of passage, a declaration of the end of one chapter and the start of another, symbolizing the shared dreams and achievements of the graduating class.
