48th St. Gallen Symposium

December 11, 2017

We are a nearly 50-year-old student initiative and invite graduate and postgraduate students from all fields of studies and corners in the world to compete for the St. Gallen Wings of Excellence Award by writing a compelling, inspiring and thought-provoking essay. Each year, this competition offers graduate and postgraduate students from all fields of study the unique opportunity to participate as “Leader of Tomorrow” at the St. Gallen Symposium, in company of 600 entrepreneurs, top managers, politicians and scientists from more than 60 nations. Your student’s are invited to submit their thoughts and visions to the question Robots are coming for your job. How do you augment yourself to stay economically relevant? at www.symposium.org/apply. Closing date is 1 February 2018

The 48th St. Gallen Symposium is devoted to the theme “Beyond the end of work” and will be held from 2–4 May 2018 in Switzerland.

As your university is among the leading in the world, we strongly believe that your students should have their say at our global conference and they should become part of our global community. In addition to the benefits mentioned above, there are some more highlights waiting for them in case they qualify:

  • Small and intimate gatherings with world leaders, exclusively for the students
  • Meet 600 of the world’s leading business, political, and academic leaders
  • Meet 200 of the world’s brightest young minds and become member of a unique global community
  • Expenses paid (travel, board and lodging)
  • Share their ideas with the symposium’s global audience


The very best student contestants present their idea on the big stage for the prestigious award, the three winners of the competition share a CHF 30’000.– cash prize. The performance will be in front of hundreds of current and future decision makers and it will be live-streamed so that the world can watch them as well. Here is how they did at our conference in 2017.
