Graduation Ceremony

The Graduation Ceremony is an event of the utmost importance at École de Savignac. Each year, the team at the School, alongside corporate guests, professionals, sponsors and former graduates, welcomes future graduates and their families for an exciting and eventful day.

An exceptional event in which to honour our new Savignac graduates

For graduates who trained during the early days of École de Savignac, the Graduation Ceremony took place in the wonderful surroundings of the amphitheater at Château de Mayac or at Château de Sorges.  More recently, these ceremonies have taken place in the hall at Savignac or at Château des Bories.  Wherever the venue, these are days that no-one will forget.  They are marked by a special atmosphere of community and solidarity.  For our students, it is the recognition of their hard work over many years, but it is also the pride of parents and families, teachers and of the whole team at the School.

It’s a far cry from the vague recollection of diplomas picked up at the university’s secretarial office or received in the post.  A Savignac graduate remains part of the Savignac family forever.

Before, during and after the ceremony, students and teachers alike are unanimous in enjoying the day.  One student said “It is a rite of passage and today we are turning a page in our lives, so it is also a new beginning.  For me, it is also very exciting to be able to introduce the teachers who trained me to my parents.”

Traditionally, the ceremony ends with a cocktail to celebrate the success of our young professionals.  This is also a great occasion for students to share their aspirations and their career plans: from China to Australia – but always passing through Savignac!

Patrons and sponsors of École Supérieure Internationale de Savignac

In 2018, there were 1,200 people enthusiastically applauding the new graduates.  Officials now travel regularly to the ceremony.   Among these guests, one in particular sets a distinctive tone at the ceremony each year: the sponsor of future graduates.

Chosen by the students, the sponsor holds a position of responsibility in one of the sectors of the hospitality industry.  This position is more than just a status.  The people chosen are leaders who take the future generation of graduates under their wing and provide students with invaluable advice throughout their professional life.
