About NEXT: Be The Change

NEXT: Be The Change is a brand-new initiative powered by AIESEC Monash that is an oncampus event that gives an opportunity for external companies and university students to interact and explore the business possibilities that exist within their degree, empowering them to discover their untapped potential. It will be a one-day professional development day and designed to be a seminar-workshop style event. i.e. seminar speakers with a split session into mini-workshops.

NEXT: Be The Change will focus on providing professional up-skilling by inviting speakers and experts in their fields to give their insights on their business journey and how they utilised the construct of business to achieve their passion. We aim to facilitate a direct connection between students and the speakers and partners to empower them to discover their untapped potential. This event will be open to all students from Monash University, University of Melbourne and RMIT who wish to take advantage of this professional development event.
