GBC 2012

Media & Presentations from this event »


The Graduate Business Conference (GBC) is the only international MBA leadership conference. The goal of the GBC is to bring together student leaders from the World’s top business schools to share best practices, discuss solutions to common issues and promote a strong network among the participating MBA students, while enriching their educational experience.

The conference is attended by the incoming and outgoing presidents from the top 50 MBA programs worldwide. It has empowered these leaders to make a positive impact through their activities within their own business schools and later in the companies and organizations they join.

In 2012, the GBC took place at The Simon Graduate School of Business at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY, USA from March 29 through the 31st.

About The Simon Graduate School of Business

You’ve always stood out among your peers. Now it’s time to make your mark on the rest of the world. A Simon full-time, part-time or Executive MBA, MS degree, executive education or PhD is where the journey begins—where thinkers become leaders, and where leaders create a legacy of success.

Due to our small size, internationally diverse student population and team-study approach, there is an opportunity for substantive, globally enriching interaction with faculty and fellow students. Simon gives you the tools you need to solve business problems creatively and to make tough decisions in real-world situations. You’ll achieve a superior level of leadership, both personally and professionally, in an environment that’s impressive all the way around: From our world-class curriculum and faculty to the inspiring Ivy League beauty of our riverside campus.

Simon is a place to stand up and stand out—a place that will leave an impression on you for the rest of your life.

Simon’s Graduate Business Council

The student government at Simon, the Graduate Business Council, is the principal means by which students shape their Simon experience and that of future classes. The Council strives to assist the Simon School in producing well-rounded students, with valuable experiences both in and outside of the classroom. This is accomplished by fostering communication, respect and understanding between students, faculty, staff and alumni in order to maintain and enhance the Simon School in the spirit of Meliora…ever better.
