Business Today is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by Steve Forbes in 1968. For the past 50 years, our goal has been to bridge the gap between influential business leaders from all industries and top undergraduate students from across the world. BT creates a dynamic forum in which students from all backgrounds can be educated and inspired.
Business Today’s flagship event, the 44th International Conference, will take place 18-20 November 2018 at the Grand Hyatt in New York. As an all-expenses paid, 3-day business conference, it includes:

Executive seminars (on-site and off-site)
Visits to company headquarters in NYC
Dinner at Bryant Park Grill
Impact Challenge (top five finalists attend the conference to pitch their social entrepreneurship startup; winning team receives seed funding of $15k)
All applicants MUST BE 1) be undergraduates in fall 2018 and 2) able to attend all three days of the conference.
The second round deadline is July 6, 11:59 PM EST.
