CLIMB YOUR WAY TO THE TOP.
WHO WE ARE
NXT-GEN is a University of Alberta student group whose members have a passion for education and entrepreneurship. Our mission is to address the gaps in business education in Edmonton and area high schools.
Our ideal world is one where access to business education is universal—no high school student is left wondering what business is or what skills are necessary to succeed in business. At NXT-GEN, we think the entrepreneurial spirit should be taught from a young age through experience based learning and competition.
We believe experience is crucial to the learning process, which is why we put on competitions designed to teach students business skills like critical thinking, financial literacy, and teamwork.
We know business skills are important to all careers, so our competitions are open to all high school students, not just those future finance majors (although, it does help if you intend to go to business school!).
We think teamwork makes the dream work! Our club is made of 15 undergraduate students at the University of Alberta working together and driven by the same passion: to give students the skills they need to succeed in business and in life.
