Entrepreneurship is a mindset – meaning it goes beyond what is taught in a classroom. This is why our interactive learning and networking sessions – either in-person or live online – are geared toward experiential learning, inspiration and personal development. You can learn first-hand from renowned academics and business practitioners.
Our NextGen Academy framework consists of a set of distinct and complementary learning opportunities. You can select the right program to suit your own unique needs, based on your age and your personal and business experience. You are also welcome to rejoin any of the program stages as often as you wish, in order to explore different business schools, cultures and topics. In addition, as a NextGen Academy applicant you will have complimentary access to an array of virtual training and networking opportunities.
