as the Chair of the 25th EBS Symposium, we are delighted to welcome you to our new website. The EBS Symposium already exists for 24 years and we are proud to organize one of the most influential and purely student organized economic congresses in Europe. We want to build on the achievements of the past Symposia, but also go a step further and be more successful. The last Symposia have defined themselves through excellent speakers, outstanding workshops, and highly-motivated participants. From Helmut Kohl and Jean-Claude Trichet to Gerhard Schröder to Frank Mattern and Dieter Zetsche many well-known personalities from business and politics were at our congress. We already have high-profile speakers who will contribute to the 25th EBS Symposium and will make it an unforgettable and interesting event. The Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch, Rothschild, BOSCH, FAZ, FOKUS, Ernst & Young and KPMG are just a few of our partners from the last 24 Years, who appreciate the quality of recruitment opportunities at the EBS Symposium.
With the theme "Broken Europe? - Defining new ways of Leadership" we want to encourage a debate at the congress, which focuses on the Eurozone Crisis, but also goes beyond it and issues topics such as the energy policy in the European Union, the democratic deficit in the EU and the question how to implement a working decision-making process and sustainable crisis prevention in Europe.
With new recruitment models, we want to bring engaged and motivated students and companies in contact and create a successful career platform.
Traditional recruiting models and new, innovative ones will go hand in hand at the congress this year. We look forward to the 17th up to 19th September this year to share the results of our work with you and to experience a great congress together.
Best Regards from the Rheingau
