World Leaders Forum
The World Leaders Forum brings recognized world leaders to the Judson University campus each year with the intent to inspire and ignite a flame of leadership for all who attend. Please join us as we endeavor to educate tomorrow’s business leaders and build greatness in the lives of Judson students! All proceeds are donated to the Entrepreneurship Program and the World Leaders Forum Scholarship Fund and are put towards educating tomorrow’s leaders. Two events take place, the VIP Reception and Keynote Address at the Hilton Chicago Hotel for sponsors and supporters and the Community Event at Judson University in Elgin, open to the Judson Community and general public.

Our Purpose and Vision
The World Leaders Forum does more than offer our students and area professionals the opportunity to be in the presence of and be inspired by World Leaders, it serves as a catalyst to raise the capital necessary to begin an Entrepreneurial Studies Program at Judson University. One dream to fund another - the cycle continues as future leaders come to Judson with aspirations of acquiring the knowledge and connections necessary to give their entrepreneurial dreams life.
