The Writing Competition

Business Today is pleased to announce that we will be continuing the writing competition as another application medium! We hope this alternative application will ensure a diversity of applicants are able to attend the International Conference.

The top three winners will have their articles published in our Magazine and Online Journal, and will receive invitations to attend the 2019 International Conference. The writing competition is open to all undergraduate students (regardless of International Conference application status), and we highly encourage those who were rejected/waitlisted from the general International Conference application to apply.

The 2019 International Conference theme revolves around “Globalization.” How is the increasing connectedness of the world changing the way businesses and consumers interact? Highlight a trend that has been a game-changer in globalization, discuss its business implications, and take a stance on how to address this trend.

The deadline to apply is July 31st at 11:59 PM Eastern Time
