14th World Business Dialogue

On March 16th and 17th, 2011, 

the University of Cologne will once again 
host the internationally renowned, largest 
student-run business convention – the 

World Business Dialogue (WBD) for the 14th time. 

Outstanding leaders from business, politics, and science will meet with 300 enthusiastic international students to discuss the complexity of our economic systems. 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 (15-03-2011) - the most exclusive recruiting event in Germany - we offer you an extraordinary supporting program during your stay. 

It takes place the day before 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 tool will be opened at the 1st of October 2010 and remain open until the 31st of December 2010. The application period will be separated into two consecutive application rounds. The first application round will last from the 1st of October 2010 until the 15th of November 2010, whereas the second round will start at the 16th of November and end at the 31st of December 2010. 

First-round-applicants will have earlier access to the workshop application and the Supporting Program application, i.e. they have better chances to participate in their favoured workshops and activities. If you haven’t been selected in the first round, you still have the chance to be chosen in the second one. 

You will be kept in our pool and you still have the chance to attend the World Business Dialogue. For further information please check out our
