The very first MBA World Summit in MBA history was held in Hong Kong on the 27th & 28th of March 2014. In the name of the whole MBA World Summit Organizing Committee, we would like to express our sincerest appreciation for all the great effort produced by every single applicant – we really are overwhelmed by all the heart, enthusiasm and positive energy that came from you! It is exactly this kind of spirit that will continue to make this event so special.

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 what role model leaders  are like, 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.
