Solve business problems as part of the award-winning Goshen College Enactus team, a team of students that puts entrepreneurship into action. Or apply for one of our entrepreneurship grants and build your own company, like Menno Tea, a popular bottled tea produced by Niles Graber-Miller ’14 and Hans Weaver ’13.

You can even take apply your business knowledge to an international setting through Study-Service Term or one of the three-week business courses we offer in Spain, China and Ecuador. In the GC business program, you’ll gain practical experience and a global perspective that will prepare you for the competitive business world.
