The MERIT Summit is a one-of-a-kind forum in which HR and business school directors meet, learn how to build tomorrow’s workforce, share ideas, and foster partnerships.
The annual MERIT Summit, which was last held in Lisbon in 2018, attracts a diverse and international group of close to 300 attendees from 100 companies and over 30 business schools. The groups come together to share strategies and insights over two days of meetings, presentations, workshops, and networking opportunities.
MERIT also organises a regional Summit, soon taking place in Singapore, as well as customised MERIT Conference events for specific executive education programmes.
