Pittsburg State University has been host to Enactus, formerly Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) for over twenty years. Enactus is a community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to enable human progress. Enactus students apply business concepts to develop community outreach projects, transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world.
National competitions are dramatic, energy-filled events where teams showcase the collective impact of their community outreach efforts. At the end of each academic year, the PSU Enactus team presents their projects and are evaluated by business leaders serving as judges who rank them on how successful they were at using business concepts to improve the quality of life and standard of living for those in need. The winners of these national competitions are then invited to compete at the prestigious Enactus World Cup. In 2012, more than 33,000 attended these competitions where students presented a broad range of projects to nearly 4,600 judges.
While attending the national competition, Enactus students are encourage to bring their resumes to speak with corporate sponsors about internship and job opportunities. Each year, numerous PSU Enactus team members are offered career opportunities that lead to successful careers.
