Business School announces Generation Next partnership
Nottingham University Business School is delighted to be partnering with East Midlands Chamber’s Generation Next, continuing our work supporting young professionals and the next generation of business leaders in the region.
Generation Next is a membership service run by the Chamber, aiming to connect business owners and employees aged between 18 and 35 with like-minded people, develop their skills and open doors to new opportunities.
It features a series of networking events and educational workshops led by a range of East Midlands-based companies and specialist advisers.
This will now include contributors from the Business School, offering their expertise to help Generation Next members produce better businesses and ideas that enable the region to thrive.
And we’re also excited to be sponsoring the Breakthrough Award category in the inaugural Generation Next Awards in July, celebrating regional businesses that are growing profitably.
Professor Duncan Angwin, Dean of the Business School, said: “We are delighted to be able to actively support the development of future business leaders in our region. It is critical for them to be able to get the business fundamentals right to enable firms to be financially strong and achieve sustainable growth, particularly during the post-pandemic recovery.
“Generation Next will benefit from the Business School’s unique global presence and perspective, with access to world-leading academic insights. We are looking forward to working collaboratively with local business leaders to address the challenges of the future.”
Lucy Robinson, East Midlands Chamber’s director of resources and Generation Next lead, added: “We are delighted to have Nottingham University Business School on board as a partner of Generation Next.
“Our visions are aligned in the sense that we want to retain young talent in the region and the university already does fantastic work in encouraging entrepreneurship through schemes such as its start-up incubator, the Ingenuity Lab.
“I’m really looking forward to working with the team at the Business School, and the wider university, to sharpen our offering with their academic perspective.”
