Top international students preparing to connect with business leaders at Junior Achievement’s Next Generation Leaders Forum
On August 11-17, 2013, Junior Achievement will welcome over 150 global youth business leaders to the annual Next Generation Leaders Forum. These future business leaders from across the globe will connect with leading experts from business schools and industry during a unique once in a lifetime opportunity.
Next Generation Leaders attendees have been individually selected as top performers in the Junior Achievement Company Program, chosen to attend for their high potential and the opportunity to advance their career. These students are planning to embark on their post-secondary ambitions with specific interest in business-related careers.
The Next Generation Leaders experience is a unique blend of personal growth, practical experience and confidence building. Delegates face real business challenges and develop strategies in collaboration with their global peers, university faculty and industry volunteers. Having developed success skills that are essential to making their dreams a reality, delegates return to their schools and communities with a new perspective on what is possible.
