About Us

We are a group of Harvard students interested in Europe
Connect America & Europe

Led by Co-Presidents Richard Dunn and Jack Stone, The Harvard College European Business Group (EBG) is dedicated to providing the Harvard Student body with knowledge about the European business environment, economic climate, investment opportunities and politics affecting the business sector of Europe. Furthermore, the EBG seeks to give students the opportunity to explore different career paths in the region and to connect with representatives of leading companies from the continent in sectors such as finance, consulting, manufacturing and more. The EBG will also create a space where students with the same interests can meet and learn from each other. We will achieve our goals through organizing guest speaker events, discussions, seminars, conferences, social activities and through other channels.
