The UMKC Enactus team has earned more bragging rights. In addition to winning the regional competition in April, they have now been named as first runners up for their league at the 2013 Enactus National Exposition.


From May 21-23, the Enactus Team represented the Henry W. Bloch School of Management at the Enactus National Exposition at Bartle Hall Convention Center in Kansas City. Due to their ranking, the UMKC team was recognized as one of the top 40 in the nation. They competed against many universities, including Flagler University, Drury University and Brigham-Young Hawaii.

Enactus advisory Cary Clark could not be more proud of his team. “It was an eye-opening event for the UMKC Enactus students.  From the moment that they arrived, until the closing celebration at the Power & Light District, they were in awe,” Clark said. “They were among the brightest and most talented students in the United States, being judged by top management of the top companies in the world.   Nothing could have been said to prepare them for the excitement and opportunities that they received.”

This fall, Enactus will be heading to China to communicate the Bloch School’s vision by working with Chinese students to help them better understand United States culture, therefore preparing them to come to the Bloch School for their furthering education.

Mayor Sly James and the City Council will host the Enactus team at City Hall on May 30 to congratulate them on their successes, and also thank them for their work to advance the Bloch School’s relationships with China.
