Young Community

Our young community, called Leaders of Tomorrow, is a unique hand-selected community of over 1.500 active members and 10.000 alumni worldwide.
Each year a three folded process ensures a diverse selection of 200 new community members.

Master and PhD students can apply for «The Global Essay Competition». The Top 100 essay writers are invited to the «St. Gallen Symposium » and are accomodated as well to the Leaders of Tomorrow Community. Bachelor students can apply for “The Global Leadership Challenge”. 5 of the 100 participants of «the Global Leadership Challenge» are accommodated to the St. Gallen Symposium.
