What does the ENACTUS team do?
Real-World Learning Experience
ENACTUS projects are not case studies or classroom simulations; they are real solutions involving real people with real issues. ENACTUS is all about finding people in need and using the positive power of business to help them solve their problems. It is about taking your classroom knowledge and putting it into practice right now. ENACTUS donor companies view ENACTUS students as “the best of the best” because they have been applying their education in the real world throughout their college career. The nature of ENACTUS and ENACTUS projects enables ENACTUS students to develop the skills that employers are seeking.
