Business conference Business School

Current full-time MBA students and those in their second year of part-time MBA studies are mentored and supported to organise and deliver the annual MBA conference. 

How is it organised?

The conference is hosted over a day in March. You will be mentored by the Programme Director and supported by the business events team, the MBA students:

  • Appoint a conference committee
  • Decide on the conference title and theme
  • Organise the marketing, logistics, presenters and content.

This is done over a three month period leading up to the conference.

Conference presenters

Presenters at the conference include:

  • The Pro-Vice Chancellor of the university
  • 'Keynote' experts from industry, public sector and third sector
  • Senior academics from Greenwich and other universities
  • All MBA students 
  • Overseas student guests from collaborative partners.

Stepping stone in your development

The event is a key point in your professional development as you will have the confidence and competence to present knowledgeably and be questioned on contemporary business issues in front of 100's of academics, industry experts and peers. 

MBA students will have been used to presenting in class and workshop environments for some months already. 

This is all part of the facilitated growth of key professional skills and attributes embedded across the programme.
