Do I need to wear a cap and gown? If so, where can I buy them?

What do I need to do to participate in the ceremony? 

In order to participate, graduates need to complete these steps:

Are family and friends invited to attend the ceremony?

Yes, we encourage each graduate to invite family and friends to attend. We ask that each graduate limit their guests to a total of 4 to accommodate everyone.

Innovation can’t simply be ordered up. To create and sustain an innovative culture, you have to go beyond being managers to becoming leaders. HDO can play a fundamental role in this transformation.”
