About The EBS Symposium

A tradition of 26 years.

For three days the campus is transformed into a platform for an exchange of thoughts and ideas between leaders and interested students. In doing so, new approaches for the challenges of tomorrow are created.

The congress consists of four main parts: speeches and discussions, workshops and presentations, Career Fair as well as entertainment. Furthermore, our Innovation Fair offers opportunities for individuals to exchange and interact.

Around 50 well known and high-profile representatives from the world of business, politics, and the general community speak on relevant issues.

More than 1,000 selected students, graduates and young professionals from Germany and abroad attend the EBS Symposium.

How it all Started.

The EBS Symposium connects the traditions of the two oldest and largest student initiatives of the EBS University for Business and Law; the “Wirtschaftssymposium” and the “Bankenforum”.

The “Wirtschaftssymposium” evolved from a merger of three already existing student projects in 1990 under the name “Pro 90”. The idea and the aim of this symposium was to bring together personalities from the world of politics, economics, and science with interested students from all over Germany. As a consequence, a platform to discuss issues of economic and political relevance was created.

“Made in Germany – a term to be redefined” was the topic of the first “Wirtschaftssymposium” and received fantastic response. The merger of the two events in 2003, however, has kick-started a series of even more successful events, the first joint conference being the 15th EBS Symposium on “Business meets Banking” in 2004.

Last Years’ Partners
