Preparing young people for the future

For students and industry
The Melbourne International Student Conference (MISC) is an annual event bringing together local and international students, as well as industry, to learn, exchange ideas, innovate and collaborate to support young people in their personal and professional development.
A collaborative approach
The conference recognises that governments, NFPs, student groups, education institutions, business, alumni and industry professionals are part of an intricately connected ecosystem of networks and relationships, and invites wide-ranging participation and input in the development and delivery of the conference program.
Looking ahead
In its fourth year, the conference will explore the things that make this generation tick, what a successful career looks like to millennials, and how to get there starting from now. Topics include working with meaning and purpose, cultural diversity and women in leadership, social entrepreneurship and strengths discovery and development.
