EBS Symposium 2019

The EBS Symposium is one of Europe’s largest and most prestigious student-run business conferences. With a history of 29 years, the EBS Symposium offers speeches, workshops, recruiting opportunities, an innovation fair and a legendary afterparty.

Each year, we invite exceptional speakers to inspire you and give you insights into business and politics. We are excited to announce that his year’s patron is Dr Joachim Faber, Chairman of the Supervisory Board Deutsche Boerse AG!

Furthermore, we are happy to welcome Sabine Bendiek, Managing Director Germany Microsoft, Dr Edmund Stoiber, former minister-president of Bavaria and leader of the CSU, Ralf Kleber Country Manager Germany, among 40 other high-ranked managers and politicians.

This year, the EBS Symposium celebrates the 30th jubilee, which will consist of 3 days packed with exciting keynote speeches on business and politics, practical workshops and lots of networking opportunities and the conference will gather over 1000 participants from the best universities and companies in Europe.


Challenge Your Tomorrow!

Under this year’s theme, the symposium will elaborate on our generation’s obligation to embrace the inevitable transformation; a transformation that will change the way we work and live.

What challenges are we facing today? How do we deal with economic, political and personal barriers like growing protectionism, automation, data security, mass migration, growing radicalism, an ageing society and the climate change? How can we overcome these barriers?

Get inspired by personal stories of 40 top-class speakers

This year, the Symposium will host 40 top-class speakers, managers who want to share their vision, knowledge and motivation with you.

You are the missing piece required to make the EBS Symposium more than just an annual economic forum.

Therefore, we want to encourage you to seize this opportunity to actively participate and engage with speakers, partners, and students from all around the world, expand your horizon and build your network of outstanding personalities.
