Academic Leaders

 

Enactus (formerly known as SIFE) provides such a unique chance to stimulate students’ creativity and ambition to make achievements. Having a master diploma of business administration and being an educator myself, I have always been looking for an effective way to make students virtually getting involved in the real business world, at the same time learning business ethics so as to be responsible business people in the future.

When looking back to the days together with SIFE students, a sense of pride linger my mind. This outstanding team uses their passion and intelligence to put entrepreneurship into action. Which exactly integrates the SIFE spirit with DUFE vision; they realize their mission as well as bring others into better life. It’s a great happiness to be a witness and advisor to these efforts coming true.

Motivate Your Students

The Enactus program has been developed in partnership with leaders from business and higher education to provide students with a platform to apply what they’re learning in the classroom to address real world business and economic issues. It is designed to serve as a natural extension of their academic activities, and the flexibility of what projects the students actually work on allows you to tailor their experiences to best fit the mission of your university as well as your own teaching objectives. The result is students who are more motivated and approach their education with a greater sense of ownership and purpose.

Build Community Relationships

Enactus provides a perfect tool for building relationships between your university and local communities. The program is intentionally flexible to allow Enactus to be relevant in many different types of environments around the world. From the nature of the projects they implement, to the audiences they target, the Enactus program allows teams to position themselves and their university as valuable members of the community. We’ll work with you to learn how to involve local business leaders and leverage your team’s activity to gain maximum awareness and media exposure. A successful Enactus team provides a tangible example of the quality of the institution they represent, the caliber of its students and the important role it can play in the community.

Connect With Other Leaders

The advisors and executives involved with Enactus represent an influential group of leaders from a diverse range of universities and industries. As an Enactus faculty advisor, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in this network through numerous events at the regional, national and international level. These events take place year-round and provide an opportunity outside of the traditional academic setting to make new contacts, gain timely insights into the ever-changing global business environment, and build mutually beneficial partnerships. Beyond the individual connections, the Enactus network also provides a venue for engaging administrators from your campus and raising the profile of your university within the business community.
