MBA World Summit 2016 – Miami, United States
True to the motto “The best things come in threes!”, the third edition of the MBA World Summit in 2016 was a major milestone. Following the breath-taking Asian city of Hong Kong (2014) and the magnificent European metropolis of Barcelona (2015), this time, the Summit took place on the American continent in the magic city of Miami – March 9th to 11th. Going by the nickname „The Gateway to the Americas“ Miami provided an eclectic atmosphere and likewise charming scene for the gathering of 106 of the most promising MBA students from business schools worldwide.
The main part of the conference was held at the beautiful campus of the University of Miami School of Business. Its combination of lavish architecture and state of the conference settings surrounded by the campus’ green and palm-fringed territories, created an atmosphere of stimulation and inspiration. Following the conference day, an Urban Art Expedition into the well-known Wynwood Art District, a sunbathe at one of the city’s famous golden sand beaches just a stone cast away from the iconic Ocean Drive, and an adventurous getaway – a boat ride along scenic Biscayne Bay – provided the true local “Miami” experience.
An absolute highlight of the MBA World Summit was this year’s “Pop-Up Manor” on day three. La Brisa Mansion originally was constructed during the 1920s and recently went through a restoration making it an outstanding estate even to Miami standards. Its extensive mangrove forest, private port and observation deck with stunning bay views at the shoreline, endless outdoor seating opportunities, pool, Koi pond and huge terrace areas, made it the perfect space for a meaningful experience and deep-diving conversations resulting in sustainable friendships for a lifetime.
MBA World Summit 2016, once again a unique and wonderful experience shared with an inspiring group of outstanding personalities!
