Enroll Now Next Generation Talent

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!

NextUP is a specialized leadership development program for high-potential women who are two to five years into their careers. The program is designed to help women overcome traditional roadblocks and achieve early and enduring success in a new assignment or job. 

Participants come to appreciate that getting ahead takes more than hard work. Successful leaders are relationship builders, and they rely on more than technical skills and knowledge to advance their careers. NextUP gives participants the opportunity to develop relationships beyond one's own company or industry, fostering strategic connections that will help their professional growth.

For employers, NextUP is an investment in the development and retention of emerging talent. The program enhances a young professional's ability to work successfully with all levels of leaders, creating a more cohesive and productive work environment.

NextUP is an interactive, multimedia, team-based program that explores:

  •  Values and goals
  •  Listening and feedback
  •  Identifying personal strengths
  •  Career derailers
  •  Social interaction in a work environment
  •  Intergenerational interactions in the workplace

The eight-week comprises three half-day workshops with three small-group coaching sessions. Practice-based homework and ample use of technology complement in-class learning.


  •  Tuition $950
  •  $50 nonrefundable application fee (will be applied to tuition for accepted applications)
