International essay contest for young professionals

Published: 25/04/2017

The Peter Drucker Challenge is an essay contest for students and young professionals which coincides with an annual international conference.

The ninth Global Peter Drucker Forum, held in Vienna on 16 November 2017, will focus on the management challenges for private and public sector organisations and the civil society in the context of a fast-changing, complex and volatile environment. It will bring together business and academic leaders to consider a range of topics focused on unlocking human potential, including the role of organisations and management in freeing up employee potential and the possible impact of technology on the prosperity of individuals, communities and the economy.

The essay competition, now in its eighth year, engages with the conference’s themes. It is open to students and young professionals between 18 and 35 years old. The submission deadline is 15 July 2017 and more information is available at
