Your courses will give you the chance to interact with business owners, intern at small and large companies, and even start your own business. Enroll in the Java Junction Management course and you’ll serve as a manager for one semester at the campus coffee shop. 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.
