28000 days benext global Apr 29, 2021

In 2013, BeNeXT Global embarked on a mission to empower individuals to become the best versions of themselves through innovative educational opportunities. Today, as we navigate through significant demographic shifts and the challenges of global education, BeNeXT stands at a pivotal juncture, spearheading a transformative move into the edtech space to democratize access to high-quality education for the 79 million college-aged Latinos in the Americas.

Demographic Shifts and Educational Opportunities

Recent discussions have highlighted a compelling demographic trend: while overall college enrollment is declining, the Latino community is experiencing robust growth in higher education. Currently, there are 7 million college-aged Latinos in the United States and an additional 72 million in Latin America, poised to redefine the academic landscape. Despite these numbers, this demographic remains underrepresented in higher education systems, indicating a significant gap—and a unique opportunity—for innovative institutions like BeNeXT Global to serve.

Innovating Education Through EdTech

Recognizing the need to cater to this burgeoning demographic, BeNeXT Global has pivoted towards creating an edtech platform that breaks new ground with in-person experiential learning programs complimented beyond the classroom with virtual, on-the-go educational experiences that extend the learning experience into the daily lives and routines of our students. Our programs are designed not just to educate but to revolutionize professional certification, continuing education, and traditional higher education models. We focus on professional certification programs and will soon open micro bachelors and micro masters programs tailored to inspire and engage Latino students, empowering them to discover their potential and drive societal change.

A Focus on Social Entrepreneurship and Project Management

BeNeXT Global is uniquely positioned to issue world-leading certifications in project design, development, and management, emphasizing real-world, hands-on experiences that are crucial for budding social entrepreneurs and change agents. Our courses are crafted to ensure that students not only learn theoretical aspects but also apply their knowledge in practical settings, preparing them to tackle the world’s most pressing issues.

Addressing the Needs of a Diverse Student Body

The shift in higher education demographics necessitates a change in how institutions operate and engage with their communities. About 73% of full-time professors are white, contrasting sharply with the increasingly diverse student body that includes nearly 20% Latinos. BeNeXT Global addresses this disparity by advocating for increased diversity among faculty and administration, ensuring that our educational offerings reflect and support the multicultural backgrounds of our students.

Empowering Through Accessible, Lifelong Learning

As we continue to expand our reach and refine our offerings, BeNeXT Global remains committed to its founding principle: empowering individuals to make a difference. Our educational programs are designed to be accessible to all, removing barriers to entry and providing flexible learning paths that cater to the needs of a global audience.


The future of higher education is indeed Latino, and BeNeXT Global is at the forefront of this transformation. By embracing the challenges and opportunities presented by the demographic shifts within the Americas, we are setting the stage for a more inclusive, effective, and innovative educational landscape. Join us as we continue to break new ground, ensuring that every individual has the opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed in a rapidly changing world. Together, we can make every day count toward building a more educated, empowered, and equitable society.
