ENACTUS is an international non-profit organization that works with leaders in business and higher education to mobilize university students to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leaders. Participating students form teams on their university campuses and apply business concepts to develop outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. An annual series of regional and national competitions provides a forum for teams to present the results of their projects, and to be evaluated by business leaders serving as judges. National champion teams advance to the prestigious ENACTUS World Cup. In addition to the community aspect of the program, ENACTUS' leadership and career initiatives create meaningful opportunities for learning and exchange among the participants as well as the placement of students and alumni with companies in search of emerging talent.
The ENACTUS program prepares university students for the real world by challenging them to address real world problems today. As ENACTUS students go about the process of organizing their team, developing community outreach projects and participating in a series of competitive events, they develop teamwork, leadership and communication skills that set them apart from the average university student. It's the reason so many top companies have identified ENACTUS as a leading source of effective, responsible business talent. Our career connections initiatives are intended to enhance the connection between ENACTUS students and alumni and ENACTUS donor companies. These initiatives are typically organized at the national level, and depending on the country, involve a variety of activities such as career fairs held in conjunction with ENACTUS events, online job postings, career publications and other exclusive content and resources.
