Student Leaders

Participation in Enactus provides university students with the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in their communities, while gaining the experience, skills and contacts necessary to build a successful career. Enactus students are talented, hard working, value-driven leaders that blend a competitive spirit and desire to succeed with a sense of integrity and desire to give something back. As a member of an Enactus team, you’ll be joining a worldwide network of more than 57,000 other students who are each making their own contribution toward our shared mission of creating a better world. It’s an experience that will change the lives of those in need and quite possibly your own as well.

Gain Real World Experience

The best way to prepare for the real world is by facing real world challenges. That’s exactly the opportunity you’ll have as an Enactus student. This is not a simulation or case study competition. You’ll be challenged to apply what you’re learning in the classroom to develop real programs that achieve real results for real people. Enactus teams teach families how to gain financial security, equip the unemployed with skills to find productive employment, help aspiring entrepreneurs achieve success, and bring economic development back to struggling neighborhoods. Along the way you’ll develop the kind of teamwork, leadership and communication skills that can only come from real life experiences.

Start a Great Career

Enactus is supported by some of the best companies in the world, who recognize the value of Enactus experience and compete very aggressively for the opportunity to meet and recruit Enactus students. You’ll have the chance to network with executives and recruiters from these companies at Enactus competitions, career fairs and through other interactive events and activities. You’ll also have access to exclusive career resources and content to help you prepare for the transition from college to the workplace. Every year, thousands of students leverage their Enactus experience and contacts to start careers with Enactus donor companies. Here’s your chance to network with and get to know the leaders of some of the top companies in the world.

Represent Your University

Enactus is a team-based activity – you’ll be a member of a team that represents your university within the community and the Enactus network, directly contributing to the positive reputation of your university with each success you have. You’ll also represent your university in competition with other colleges and universities at the national level and if your team is good enough, you’ll have the once in a lifetime chance to compete for a world championship against the best teams in the world. As you and your teammates go about the process of building your team, developing projects, finding funding, overcoming obstacles and adversity and participating in a competition, you’ll develop the kinds of bonds and friendships that can last a lifetime.
