Student In Free Enterprise (SIFE)

Dear Students,

Be part of the challenging society and gain the growing needs of the next generation.
UTeM is now in the midst of forming SIFE team to initiate a formal network at local
and global levels.

What is SIFE?

SIFE is a partnership between business and higher education that is preparing the next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders to create a better world for everyone.
SIFE's global network consists of business executives, university students and academic leaders.

SIFE students form teams that serve their communities by developing projects that take what they are learning in their classrooms about business and use it to solve real world problems for real people. Business executives support the program through corporate donations, personal contributions and the gift of their time.

The SIFE program concentrates on six areas: market economics, success skills, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, environmental sustainability, and business ethics. An additional consideration is the long-term sustainability of their team and educational programs.

The students are led by faculty advisors who challenge them to develop projects that specifically meet the unique needs of their communities. For example, their efforts help aspiring entrepreneurs, struggling business owners, low-income families and children experience success.

SIFE teams present the results of their community projects annually at regional, national and international competitions. Business executives judge the competitions and select the winners based on which teams they believe were most effective at helping others through their projects.

Through SIFE, university students improve their communities and experience profound personal growth. As these young people assume leadership roles of significance and influence, they will be the key to leading more sustainable enterprises, building stronger communities and creating a world with greater opportunity for all of us.
