MBA World Summit 2022
November 16th-18th in Milan/Italy

The MBA World Summit is an exclusive yearly convention of the “100 most inspiring MBA students from the world’s top business schools.” The 3-day agenda includes best practice sharing, high-impact exchange and global community building, as well as reverse mentoring with leaders of multinational companies – all of this in an innovative, eclectic and familiar atmosphere.

The possibility to take part is strongly limited and the admission criteria are strict. A central role in the selection process is played by personality, especially character traits that are not apparent merely from an excellent CV. Authenticity, charisma, competence in communication and the ability to inspire, yet also rough edges – simply that famous something, a certain je ne sais quoi!

We are currently in our Club Application Phase: We offer you the unique chance to represent your student club at the MBA World Summit!

Application period for 2022 terminated, feel free to apply next year!


To qualify, MBA students must be first or second year full-time MBA students or in a deferred enrollment program for an MBA (eg. 2+2 or 1+1) at some point in 2022 (incoming and outgoing MBA students are very welcome as well). Executive MBA students, part-time MBA students as well as postgraduate MBA students have the possibility of participating in the MBA World Summit until up to one year after the final graduation.

Since we have reached our Club Application Phase, we are happy to learn if and in which student club/ association of your business school you are engaged via your application. If you are part of multiple student clubs, you may choose the one you wish to represent.

The club with the most members attending the MBA World Summit will win our Most Inspiring Club (MIC) Award. For more information, please check our FAQ


Qualifying round for MBA students will take place End of September.

Final participants will be notified in the beginning of October 2022!
