To those business aspirants, this is a fantastic opportunity for all of you to spend 4 days at Manhattan, New York City, listening, discussing and debating about Business with another 200 or so top students from all over the world, as well as with 50-70 top business executives in the world.
Business Today International Conference
This conference was founded in 1968 by Steve Forbes (Founder of Forbes Magazine), Jonathan Perel and Michael Mims when they were at Princeton University. Today, this is the premier business international conference in the United States. Other similarly prominent business conference for undergraduates around the world are:-
ISC Symposium, St. Gallen, Switzerland
World Business Dialogue, Cologne, Germany
Harvard Project For Asian and International Relation
Business Today International Conference would be held 19th to 22nd November 2005 at Marriott Marquis Times Square, Manhattan, New York City. The title would be "Business without Borders: The Global Economy".
This conference is open to students from any major who is studying at undergraduate anywhere in the world. The application deadline is 15th May. I went there last year, and it is definitely a great learning opportunity.
And for the cost, it is heavily subsidized. The conference (fee, accomodation at hotel, food etc) is completely free, courtesy of many corporate sponsors. For the flights, they will sponsor 85% of your flight from anywhere in the world.
