My 2012 Corporate Finance class graduate on Monday morning. I really enjoyed teaching this class so it will be great to see them do the graduation walk. I am delighted that many of them have done well in the job market. Clare Bamber is to be congratulated for graduating top of her year group.
In the US, there is usually a graduation speech given by a faculty member or valedictorian. You can read about a recently-delivered subversive graduation speech here.
