An annual series of regional and national competitions allow Enactus teams to present their project results before a panel of judges involving many of today’s top business leaders. The top teams from each bracket at the Regional Competition advance to the National Competition and compete against some of the nation’s most elite universities. Bryan College presentation team had competed at Nationals 4 of the last 5 years, and most recently advanced to the quarterfinal round of competition in April of 2015.
Dr. Adina Scruggs, faculty sponsor of the Bryan College Enactus team, explains, “The career fairs at the Regional and National Expo are outstanding and give Bryan students the chance to interact with major employers and often interview on-the-spot for internships and full-time positions. Bryan College has built a reputation of producing knowledgeable students with integrity and employers are seeking those qualities. The career fair is truly a highlight of Enactus events and our students are well prepared for this opportunity.”
Enactus has many corporate and organizational partners that support and sponsor the organization such as Wal-Mart, The Coca Cola Company, Lowe’s, Pepsico, Procter and Gamble, and Frito Lay, among others. During the regional and national competitions, Enactus students have the opportunity to network with professionals from many of these corporations and build contacts for future employment. In the last few years, Bryan College Enactus students have been employed by companies such as Clorox, SAP, Aramark, Sam’s Club, Northwestern Mutual and Hershey’s.
