Notice for St. Gallen Symposium


Your students have the unique opportunity to qualify for an expenses-covered participation in the world's premier conference for intergenerational dialogue, the 46th St. Gallen Symposium in Switzerland, by competing for the St. Gallen Wings of Excellence Award 2016.

For 46 years, the St. Gallen Symposium has been providing a platform for healthy debates across generations. 200 excellent young talents - the "Leaders of Tomorrow", and hopefully among them some of your students - are granted the possibility to discuss pressing issues in the realms of management, politics and civil society together with 600 of today's decision makers. We are proud to count distinguished personalities such as Dominic Barton, McKinsey & Company, Inc., Tony Tan Keng Yam, President of the Republic of Singapore, Niall Ferguson, Harvard University, or Christine Lagarde, International Monetary Fund, among our former guests. Organised by the International Students' Committee (ISC), the 46th St. Gallen Symposium will be held from 11 -13 May 2016 at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.

By submitting a creative, bold and controversial essay until 1 February 2016, your graduate or postgraduate students can qualify as "Leaders of Tomorrow" for our conference. If they make it even in the top three, they will receive the prestigious St. Gallen Wings of Excellence Award endowed with CHF 20,000.-. Expenses for travel, board and lodging are fully covered by the ISC.
