The "World Business Dialogue" is the world's largest student-run business convention. Here, 50 top-class personalities from economy, science and politics enter a discussion about economically and socially relevant, future-oriented topics with 300 international students and just as many executives, notably from German companies. For 25 years, Cologne University is converted into a convention centre for the economic elite for two days. Also known under its former title "Deutscher Wirtschaftskongress", the World Business Dialogue will once again take place in March 2010 for the 13th time.
The convention's organisation is realized by the members of the Organisationsforum Wirtschaftskongress (OFW) e.V., where approximately 40 students are responsible for the project's success. Furthermore, during the period leading up to the convention, the OfW e.V. is assisted by sponsors and a supporting team of 200 students who allow for the smooth running of the convention.
The Organisationsforum Wirtschaftskongress e.V. (OFW) is the organisator of the world's largest entirely student-run business convention, the World Business Dialogue.
The World Business Dialogue's singularity and relevance are supported by a large number of well-known speakers that have participated in past conventions; among these are Josef Ackermann, CEO of Deutsche Bank, Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, and Michael Bloomberg, governing mayor of New York, who made use of the convention as a platform for discussion and exchange and appreciated the student's commitment. The same is also true for the 300 corporate participants who were and continue to be attracted by a mixture of cross-generational dialogue, deeply founded topics, networking and recruiting.
Last but not least, through the "World Business Dialogue", student participants have the unique opportunity to approach representatives of the global economy and to establish contact with motivated fellow students from around the world.
Dear donors, when managers of a project haven't requested a payout over the course of a longer period, th German law provides that we (gut.org gemeinnützige AG, operator of betterplace.org) use the money for our tax-deductible purposes. The same applies to the cancellation of a project, where the manager of the project is unable to realise it. Therefore we will use these donations for the following purposes: https://www.betterplace.org/c/help/when-donations-cannot-be-spent-for-the-project/ Thanks for your support, the betterplace.org-team
