Enactus combines business intelligence with entrepreneurial action to create change within communities nearby and worldwide. Joining Enactus will present you with the chance to grow your leadership, entrepreneurial and business skills, give back to the community, practice your presentation skills, and expand your career opportunities.
Our Enactus student team leaders plan, organize and lead projects that impact our community with positive change. Close to the end of the year, our team leaders attend the Enactus Regional Competition where they present their projects in front of a panel of judges. These judges are typically managers, CEOs and business leaders of prominent companies. They judge the projects of competing schools to determine regional placings and who will go on to compete at nationals. Our Andrews University Enactus team has won at regionals multiple times, allowing us to compete at the Enactus National Competition often. Enactus competitions also feature outstanding career fairs with major companies who are very interested in hiring Enactus members for internships and entry-level positions.
“This competition is an event that truly inspires my love for business. It gives me energy and motivation to change our ‘corner of the world’” – Arleni Calderon
“Thanks to the Enactus career fair, I have a job with Ferrero as the assistant brand manager for Nutella! The amount of opportunity available at Nationals is remarkable and I am thankful I could be a part of the AU Enactus team.” – Megan Reed

“Health & Fitness Expo” during Andrews University’s Alumni Weekend—FMA students provided discussion and calculation of a future monetary value to demonstrate the power of compound return. This was termed “financial fitness,” a bit of a departure from the theme of the other exhibitors who focused on nutrition and physical activity. The visitors to the FMA exhibit supplied inputs for monthly savings or investment amount, earnings rate, and length of time horizon, leading to an ending value. The visitors made a guess about the magnitude of the ending value, and found that it is difficult to accurately estimate that value since the power of compounding is not obvious. Visitors to the booth ranged in age from 8 to 80, and all visitors were entered into a contest for prizes including an exercise bike.
