St. Lawrence College sent five students to New York City to participate in the World Business Forum, which ran from October 7-8, 2014. The students were able to gain valuable insight from business leaders on how to succeed in a changing economy.

The World Business Forum is an annual event that brings business leaders and thinkers together to present on topics that impact today’s business world. This event draws high-level business professionals from various industries and provides an opportunity for people to network with new industries. This year’s event was held at Radio City Music Hall and included presenters such as Malcolm Gladwell and Sir Ken Robinson, who presented on the topic of “Provocateurs” and challenging the status quo.

“Participating in the World Business Forum was an amazing experience,” said third year Business Administration – Marketing student Jolisa Masucol. “We were able to hear multiple business leaders speak on topics that are not only relevant to us as students but also as future business leaders.”
