The winners are role models for student leadership and responsible leadership at the global level and have succeeded in making a significant impact within the graduate business community or society.

The Leadership Awards will be bestowed at the 2019 Graduate Business Conference to be held April 3-6, 2019 at ESCP Europe Business School. The Commemorative Banquet and Gala in honour of the Global Leadership Awards finalists will take place on Friday, April 5, 2019.
