Embedding Next Great Innovator Into Your Classroom

We are delighted that the Next Great Innovator Challenge is being embedded into course curriculums across the country. If you’re planning to use the Challenge as a teaching tool in your course, read on for suggested next steps.

What’s in it for you:

Clearly, the Next Great Innovator Challenge is a great opportunity for students – but professors can also benefit from all that the program has to offer.

By embedding it in your course curriculum, you can utilize the Challenge to motivate your students, and as an opportunity to teach real-world business problem solving. By making the Challenge part of your course outline, you will:

  • Receive RBC support
  • Incorporate discussion of the Challenge support content and materials (found in the Resources section of this site) into your course material
  • Get the chance to have your students’ solutions implemented by RBC Royal Bank
  • Enjoy exposure for your school as a participant — and potentially as a finalist team!
  • Boost your credibility and that of your school, be known as innovators invested in the future success of their students
