Business Today presents the 47th International Conference - The International Conference is a conference that connects undergraduate students from around the world with top business executives. We connect the leaders of today with students like you — the leaders of tomorrow — to create a meaningful dialogue on the current business landscape.
This year’s theme is “The Work of Tomorrow.” The conference will be virtual from the 10th to the 14th and in person from the 12th to the 14th.
For the past 47 years, Business Today has attracted top undergraduate students from across the world to be part of the International Conference. This unique opportunity exposes attendees to diverse viewpoints, not only from many industries and companies, but also from students of different countries, universities, and backgrounds. True to our mission, we connect influential business executives with top undergraduate students to develop the next generation of leaders. At Business Today’s International Conference, we aim to create a meaningful dialogue in which students and executives can connect and learn from each other so that together we can face the issues of tomorrow.
