Honoring the Rakuten Advertising Class of 2020

Graduation Day is a rite of passage in our society, a day marking the recognition of the completion of one journey and the beginning of another.

The Class of 2020’s graduation is unlike any we’ve ever seen before or since. Social distancing measures put in place means that traditional cap-and-gown graduation ceremonies are being postponed, cancelled or reimagined altogether.

With numerous graduates in our Rakuten Advertising family, we wanted to make sure that they got the recognition they so richly deserved, for working hard to complete a major life milestone in unprecedented circumstances. We are proud of the work that our graduates have put in and excited for the things they will accomplish in this brave new world.

So ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, we present to you the Rakuten Advertising Class of 2020!
