From the 17th to the 19th of October 2012, the University of St.Gallen is proud to once again host the Emerge conference. Now in its 5th year, the Emerge conference is the premier student-run conference on emerging markets worldwide, with an extremely competitive application process resulting in the 150 most motivated, able and impressive student candidates from across the globe being invited to take part in workshops, keynote speeches and networking events involving academic experts and brilliant personalities from the professional world.
For this year’s edition of the Emerge conference we will be partnering with Arthur D. Little, a leading consulting firm, to revolutionise the concept of interactive conferences through intensive hands-on workshops. The expertise and comprehensive emerging market experience of Arthur D. Little will be put to use in a final day of small-group, workshop-based case studies, solving current emerging market scenarios with market-leading companies as support. Giving participants the chance to apply theoretical knowledge learned over the first two days to real life problems under the guidance of industry experts, the case-studies promise to be an invaluable and irreplicable opportunity.
