We are the group of University of Michigan students organizing the conference and making sure that the event is a great success every year! The board has roughly 60 students each year, including MBAs, BBAs, and other passionate undergraduates and graduate students interested in Asia business. We are divided into the Conference Group, which handles the internal finance, corporate relations, marketing, operations and, IT, and Panel Group, which is mainly responsible for contacting speakers and organizing panel discussions.
The board has always been a close knit community, connecting students and alumnus with the same interests and goals. Throughout the school year, we collaborate and work hard to build the conference step by step. At the same time, we play hard and organize activities and events for board members. Our friendships go far beyond the successfully organized conference every year and are maintained even after our graduation.
On the behalf of the Asia Business Conference team, we would like to thank you for your interest! Unfortunately, the Fall 2021 recruitment season has ended and we are incredibly delighted to have such a promising team this year. We are recruiting again in Fall of 2022, so please come check us out! More information will be released as it gets closer to the next school year.
