The MBA World Summit is the flagship event of the GLC, a Global Leadership Community which aims to
become the apex leadership network for the most exceptional individuals worldwide that will follow all
Summit participants, past and present, through their entire personal and professional lives. The GLC is
composed of members who stretch across all different levels of seniority and they stem from various
working backgrounds, but they all share the fundamental same educational process which is accentuated
through the MBA World Summit event and the provided network thereafter.
This growing community which welcomes a fresh group of members each year carries on the work begun
and the relationships forged at the Summit in locally organized „City Circles“, by arranging meet-ups and
ground-up initiatives. Every year, all Summit alumni are also invited to participate in the MBA World Summit
and pass on the Summit’s innovative and eclectic culture to new members (including full sponsorship of
accommodation, catering and entertainment).
