The Chairman of the Royal Bank of Scotland states that if businesses require more science, technology, engineering and science (STEM) graduates, they’ve got to stimulate more students to come into their disciplines. It makes sense that if industries as diverse as finance and pharmaceuticals need these critically important graduates, that mentors within each industry must stimulate the production of these graduates. One area that Next Acropolis excels is in its ability to empower mentorship between industry pros and students. Not only do corporations need to encourage students to pursue career paths in STEM majors, but they have got to court them to join up with them once they’ve come of age. This is a fragile type of relationship, best done online, where a company mentor can reach out and cultivate a strong crop of new recruits… This is what Next was built to do.
