The Pinnacle Summit of the Global MBA Community
The MBA World Summit is about shaping a Global Leadership Community. In every year it invites the 100 most inspiring MBA students from business schools worldwide. All of them will be involved in co-creating the agenda for a four-day Summit, which focuses on the three pillars of nurturing a collaborative culture, facilitating high-impact exchange and championing interdisciplinary approaches to global business problems.
