The Word Business Dialogue is the largest international student-run business convention worldwide which takes place in Cologne, Germany every year.  The 17th  World Business Dialogue opens now its ambassador program. It creates a multicultural Dialogue across generations and hosts exciting discussions between high-potential international students, experienced executives and the world’s top-class speakers. Notable speakers of the past were among others: Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg (Mayor of New York City) or Dr. Josef Ackermann (former CEO of Deutsche Bank). The event will take place on 12-13 March 2014.

Additionally to the conference there will be a project phase of two months around the convention where selected participants will work on real business cases provided by partnering companies and thus will experience intense business exposure.
