The 7th Global Peter Drucker Forum will take place in Vienna, Austria,
on 5 and 6 November 2015.

Topic: "Claiming our Humanity – Managing in the Digital Age"

The Global Peter Drucker Challenge

is a contest for students and professionals from the ages of 18 to 35. Organized by the Peter Drucker Society Europe, the contest aims at raising awareness of the works and humanistic values of Peter Drucker among young people –
the new generation poised to build on a management philosophy that puts the human being at its center.

In 2015 we invite you to think out of the box and to submit an essay covering the topic "Managing Oneself in the Digital Age". The theme will challenge you to take a look inside yourself to place out the strength that no one else possesses.

Open to 2 categories:

  • Students (undergraduates, graduates, MBA, Phd)
  • Professionals (managers and entrepreneurs), future professionals
