You are interested in the topic of Responsible Leadership and would like to exchange your thoughts with other students/people around the world?  Then, you should definitely apply to be part of the active community of the World Business Dialogue.

What we do

We foster an international exchange about topics that have a deep impact on businesses as well as on society. The exchange is between different cultures, generations and professions. In brief, it is between all of you who want to be part of a diverse exchange.  A topic that cannot get out of our minds is Responsible Leadership. We want to define the characteristics of a Responsible Leader, how you can learn to manage responsibly and what are possible limits (in particular in extreme situations like the Corona crisis). Therefore, we have started a podcast. Its name is its aim at the same time: “The Dialogue”. You can also ckeck out our Blog with international thoughts on Responsible Leadership from our community. Another option is our video series “Leading Responsibly through the Corona crisis” where we gather short opinions from leaders from all around the world.
