More than 340 graduates were recognized for the completion of either their undergraduate, master’s or doctoral degree in subjects like accounting, marketing, management, finance, entrepreneurship, international business, real estate, and information systems and operations management.

Dean John Kraft presided over the ceremony featuring alumni remarks by Nathan S. Collier (BSBA ’74, MBA ’78, JD ’82), founder and chairman of The Collier Companies and namesake of the Nathan S. Collier Master of Science in Real Estate program, music by the Gainesville Brass Quintet, presentation of the national anthem by UF College of the Arts student Julia Duca and the Alma Mater by Poe Business Ethics Center Director Dr. Brian Ray.

Collier shared with students some of his top leverage points for life, urging them to make plans, reflect through journaling and continually learn.

“You are the CEO of your life,” he said.
