March 13th – 15th | Sydney, Australia

In 2019 the MBA World Summit was held for the 6th time in its history. It traveled to Australia and was hosted by the Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) of the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in its exciting hometown of Sydney. It not only offered the possibility to immerse into Australia – the beautiful continent downunder – and become acquainted with its challenges and great potentials, but also the opportunity for participants to leave lasting footprints and with expanded networks. 
Read all about the exciting three days of high-impact exchange, best-practice-sharing and creative strategizing below! – Also find more information on the Summit and stay tuned for updates on the next MBA World Summit on our Facebook page.

The main part of the conference was held at the Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) at the University of New South Wales Business offers innovative, experiential, world-class programs designed to equip a new generation of leaders to thrive in an accelerated world. Based in Sydney, Australia, the AGSM @ UNSW Business School’s globally ranked MBA programs are taught by internationally recognized academics and Executives-in-Residence from leading corporate and government organizations. Students are immersed in active learning experiences and are exposed to practical skills and tools they can immediately apply to real world business problems. 

This year’s Welcome Reception on Day 1 of the Summit was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia with a breathtaking view onto the harbour and the famous Sydney Opera House.  For the panel, we had a number of AGSM Alumni present, a former Facebook MD, the CEO of Sinorbis, and the CGO of WiseTech Global. The conference on Day 2 provided a program of utmost variety with a “Welcome to Country” ceremony, creative Summit Laboratory Sessions (SLS) ranging from “AI” to “Motherhood of Biases” concluded by a delicious networking dinner and bar night in the evening. For Day 3, AGSM had – once more – invited numerous alumni, that have ventured into the startup world and are creating their own businesses, to talk about their journey and how they managed to create social impact along the way. In addition, the day generated the opportunity for the participants of the Summit to get active and leave an impact by developing a global expansion strategy for a social entrepreneur in our Social Impact Day.

Yet another inspiring MBA World Summit lies behind us. Ideas for innovative businesses were discussed, promising connections were made, and a new chapter of leadership was written! We are grateful for three days of high-impact exchange and best-practice-sharing and for being able to dive into this unique cultural setup! Shout out to AGSM to “Welcome us to Country” on so many levels!
