About / Introduction

South American Business Forum

The purpose of this letter is to invite the students of CITY UNIVERSITY / COLLEGE OF MANAGEMENT to participate of the fourth edition of the South American Business Forum (SABF). This is a forum organized entirely by students, which annually takes place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, being the Buenos Aires Institute of Technology (ITBA) the hosting University. The forum´s structure is inspired in events of similar characteristics that have been periodically held in several countries around the world (USA, Switzerland and Germany ) for more than 30 years!

The event consists primarily of gathering 100 of the finest students regardless of their career, from universities of all around the world with prominent business international leaders and notable speakers from academic and intellectual spheres during the days of August 8th, 9th and 10th, 2008. To attend this event, students must write an essay making reference to this year´s main theme: "Empowering Agents of Change". Afterwards, an independent jury made up of professors, business leaders and journalists will make the selection. The application period starts during the first weeks of January and ends on May 11th, 2008.

This is an exellent opportunity for the students to participate of an event where they will be in touch with present leaders of the academic, business and political spheres as well as with students from around the world, sharing an enriching dialogue and thus, generate ideas that may contribute directly to the sustainable development of the region. It is, furthermore, an experience in which the cultural exchange contributes to the personal and professional formation of the students.

During the previous editions of the SABF, we had participants from other universities in the world, such as Harvard University, London School of Economics and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, among others. This year we are willing to keep the same level of excellency and this is why we want to invite students of your university to participate of the event.

We are at your disposition hoping you will contact us and willing to achieve, by working together, a good circulation of the forum so as to give your students the opportunity of participating of the event. We make use of diffusion e-mails and posters that could be sent to you. Any other way of spreading the event you might find interesting or suitable to achieve our goal is welcome. If you are not the person I should communicate with, I would be very grateful if you could send this e-mail to who corresponded. For more information about the SABF, you may visit our official web site: www.sabf.org.ar.

Thank you very much for your time,
