Ryan Janvion (’16), a business and enterprise management major, is also captain of the Wake Forest football team and plays tenor saxophone in his spare time. From the article:

What did you enjoy most about majoring in a business-related field? I enjoyed how real the classes were. We discussed current issues and events that were going on now in our world. I also loved learning about how major companies actually worked and how organizations were able to cultivate good environments for their employees to work in. 

Austin Evers (’16), a business and enterprise management major, launched a software startup while he was still in high school. From the article:

Favorite Business Courses:  During my sophomore year in the School of Business, I took a class called “Why Business?” The class evaluated the proper role of business in a humane and just society and it equipped me with tools to explore why I was majoring in business. I think it gave a greater sense of purpose in my studies and helped me develop informed and reasoned positions of my own on the relative morality of markets and business. I also enjoyed my classes on strategy, marketing, and finance.
