Excellence in friendship

We promote the growth and self development of our members. The MSB experience also consists of professional trainings, diplomatic meetings and hands-on experience building to improving the speaking, debating and negotiating skills.

Model United Nations

MUN conferences are academic simulations of the United Nations where students play the role of delegates from different countries and attempt to solve real world issues using the policies and perspectives of their assigned country in an assigned committee (Human Rights Council or Security Council for example).

There are thousands of MUN’s around the world, each more or less well-known. We participate in 3 MUN’s a year:

  • OXIMUN in Oxford (end of October-beginning of November),
  • LIMUN in London (end of February);
  • Harvard World MUN in March, considered to be the Olympics of Model United Nations. Its location changes every year around the world, its recent locations including Panama, Montreal, Rome and Seoul.

Some of the usual suspects are UNICEF, IMF and WHO. Committees, however, are not confined to those, as for example historical or future committees stage a situation of either the past or the future and where, besides a good knowledge of country positions, your creativity is triggered.

Every delegate is assigned a country other than his or her own homeland to level the playing field. During the conference he or she is expected to defend the interests of the assigned country to his or her best capabilities.

During our various conferences, we have been assigned a vast amount of countries, ranging from China and the USA to Zimbabwe and Djibouti.

Through MUNs participants have major opportunities to develop themselves in a way that complements higher education. Some skills one is being taught during MUNs are invaluable additions to one's personal development and professional profile, such as :

  • public speaking,
  • negotiation,
  • leadership,
  • diplomacy.

Thanks to our dedicated partners.
