The McMaster World Congress is a prestigious conference that has taken place for the last 40 years. This year it is scheduled on January 31st and February 1st, 2019 to bring together academic students and industry professionals from around the world. Through informative presentations and inspirational speaker sessions, the McMaster World Congress provides student delegates with knowledgeable information that helps them better understand how to adapt to real-world situations. The conference also provides ample opportunity for attendees to meet, socialize and network.


The McMaster World Congress is one of the largest student-run events at McMaster University, promising to deliver functional and valuable sessions each year to students from every faculty. Since 1978, thousands have attended the conference each year, and it has continued to grow and prosper into a more reputable, headlining event. Today, the McMaster World Congress is one of the longest-running business conferences in Canada, and consistently delivers exciting topics on an annual basis.
