MBA World Summit 2017 | 1st - 4th March, Berlin, Germany
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.
A Creative “Laboratory” for Collaborative Exchange
The MBA World Summit is by far “The” platform where the collective voice and wisdom of the most innovative and passionately collaborative MBA students is heard.
To this end, many participants prepare a series of experimental workshops, termed ’Summit Laboratory Sessions’, to share their knowledge and incubate emerging ideas during the course of the Summit. These workshops span an eclectic gamut of topics and provoke vigorous discussion amongst the participants, helping to forge strong relationships amongst this group of upcoming global business leaders.
A Chance for Outstanding Career Opportunities & Inspirational Sparring with Top-Executives
A small number of carefully selected and highly inspiring companies who share in the Summit’s values are also invited to participate in this global forum as partner companies. They contribute to the exciting and stimulating environment by
sharing perspectives from the ‘corporate battlefield’ and extending lucrative career opportunities to the attendees
– participants will have the option of exclusive face-to-face time with company representatives to discuss new perspectives and future possibilities.
A Global Leadership Community (GLC)
More than an event, the MBA World Summit is the gateway for students to join and shape the GLC, a powerful global leadership community.
It is the apex leadership network for the most exceptional individuals worldwide that follows all Summit participants, past and present, through their entire personal and professional lives. This growing community, which welcomes a fresh group of members each year, carries on the work begun and the relationships forged at the Summit, organizing meet-ups, ground-up initiatives and regional chapters in global cities across the world. Every year, all Summit alumni are also invited to participate in the MBA World Summit and pass on the Summit’s innovative and eclectic culture to new members.
Tapping on the high calibre of talent and the outsized ambitions of its rigorously selected members, the GLC will be at the forefront of the global conversation on business in the years to come. As more of its members rise to influential positions around the globe, the GLC will eventually advance beyond facilitating inspiring dialogues to incubating high-impact projects with a positive business and social agenda. This long-term goal, then, is what the GLC is about.
‘Inspiration con brio’: Inspiration, vigorously applied.
All of the 100 handpicked student finalists who make it through the rigorous selection process will receive sponsorship for travel, accommodation and entertainment expenses for the Summit.
