The Power of Experience

We believe hands-on experience not only helps students better understand their coursework, but gives them an advantage over others when looking for a job.

Enactus

We are often asked, what exactly is Enactus? Part of the national Enactus orgnization, teams of students examine needs in their community, identify potential solutions and lead community impact projects. This allows communities to benefit from innovative ideas, plus students gain real world experience to advance their personal and professional lives. Projects are presented at the national Enactus competition where Graceland competes against over 500 other universities every spring.

Graceland Enactus is sponsored by The Sandage Center for the Study of Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurship. The Sandage Center seeks to perpetuate the spirit of free enterprise in students, faculty and community. The study of America’s entrepreneurial tradition enhances and strengthens our economy by encouraging innovation and by familiarizing young people with a knowledge of the principles and history of free enterprise.

Testimonials From Our Business Students
At Graceland, I found most value in the professors that I had. Every single professor would go the extra mile for me to ensure I understood the curriculum. What truly made a difference with these professors is that they would open their doors to their classrooms as well as their own homes if needed. Professors would ensure that curriculum was understood and they would post open office hours where you could speak to them in regards to any subject being taught. The professors also ensured to relate real life experiences or scenarios that would ensure relatability to the curriculum for a better grasp.
