Summit Laboratory Sessions

All attending MBAs will have the chance to conduct their own experimental 45-min lab session (SLS) as a „speaker“, designed to inspire their fellow participants and incite intense discussion. All „speakers“ have complete control over the creative direction of their proposed topics (e.g. lecture/speech incl. Q&A or workshop, etc.)  

The SLS are a great way to share knowledge, experience & passion, but also to raise awareness on particular subjects from social responsibility to environmental protection to economic sustainability. Participants grapple with current issues such as how artificial intelligence and blockchain technology are transforming our economic system, how climate change is threatening our environment, how cybercrime is influencing businesses and societies, how diversity and inclusion can be promoted in companies, and how the energy transition can be advanced to protect our planet.

The „speaker“ with the highest ranked Summit Laboratory Session (SLS) will be granted with the Tim-Eisenmann-Award to honor the summits most inspiring voice. All attendees will vote live at the MBA World Summit for their most favorite and inspiring SLS.

Hence the MBA World Summit provides you with a platform to develop concrete ideas that have a positive impact on our world.

Message to the World


A highlight of the MBA World Summit is the adoption of a joint closing statement, the “Message to the World.” In this statement, participants express their shared values, visions, and proposed solutions, making a visible commitment to making a positive contribution to the world. This closing statement is not only disseminated to leading education and innovation hubs, but also shared on social media and other communication channels. It serves as a testament to the participants’ commitment to driving positive change in the world.



During numerous session, lunches, dinners and social events you´ll have the opportunity to meet your peers in a family-like atmosphere, make new friendships and foster life long connections.



Take the opportunity to meet representatives of some of the most inspirational companies in a casual setting with space for open conversations.
