Who are NEXSTEP?

NEXSTEP was voted 2017’s most innovative internship program by goabroad.com for its Virtual Internship Initiative. As companies transition to remote work structures, it is clear that our work reality has changed and the lasting impact of how work will be conducted online makes a virtual internship experience life-changing and future-ready for the next generation of leaders like yourself.

As student are currently not able to travel abroad, we should not limit their access to gaining work experience in an international context, therefore a creative learning structure for virtual internships combines both global engagement with real-world project-based experience.

Additionally, as companies adapt to their remote work structures, it is likely the coronavirus pandemic will be having a lasting impact on how work is conducted around the world. As such, utilising this time to building up experience of remote working is criterial to preparing our next generation of leaders for this new way of working.
