Thoughts on the MBA World Summit
At the MBA World Summit in Hong Kong 2014 we interviewed participants and asked them to share their thoughts about the MBA World Summit. They stated that meeting the peers from all around the world and participating in sessions made by the fellow MBA students is very unique. Breaking limits and connecting to students from other universities is what the platform offers.
Thoughts on Leadership
MBA World Summit participants in Hong Kong were explaining how leader are, what values they have, and how they should behave. Students from Columbia Business School, London Business School, INSEAD, HAAS School of Business Berkerley, NUS Business School shared their ideas and thoughts with us.
Summit Laboratory Sessions (SLS)
MBA students conduct experimental ‘lab sessions’ – lectures, workshops, ‘talk-shops’ or ‘think-tanks’ designed to inspire and incite intense discussion and best-practice-sharing. These student speakers have complete control over the creative direction of their proposed topics, which are screened, selected and then refined by the organizing committee prior to the Summit. They are hold in parallel and the participants can choose from a vast list of topics.
At the MBA World Summit in Berlin in 2017 one of the MBA students made a live video of one of the SLS sessions:
