On March 17th and 18th, 2010, the University of Cologne will once again host the internationally renowned, largest student-run business convention – the World Business Dialogue (WBD) for the 13th time. ...Outstanding leaders from business, politics, and science will meet with 300 enthusiastic international students to discuss the opportunities and challenges that emerge from the global financial and economic crisis, under the topic “Crisis Demands: A Call for True Sustainability”. At the World Business Dialogue, you will have the unique opportunity to develop optimistic solutions to deal with the demanding subject matter within workshops and panel-discussions.
Aside from the two convention days and the Career Fair—the most exclusive recruiting event in Germany—we offer you an extraordinary supporting program during your stay. It takes place the day before and the day after the convention and includes multiple cultural highlights, selected company visits, and the possibility to explore the infamous nightlife of Cologne.
The individual selection of the student participants will be based on your application. The application will consist of a “Who Am I” paper, your résumé or CV, and creating two topic-related questions. The “Who Am I” paper should describe who you are, what you study, and why you are interested in the World Business Dialogue. You will also need to create two questions that are related to the topic. These should be questions that you are interested in and would like to see answered during the convention.
The application process will begin on Monday, August 12th, 2009 and will close on Thursday, December 31st, 2009. You will be able to apply online.
