PGCC SIFE TEAM ATTENDS REGIONAL COMPETITION

by Angela Rabatin, Business Management

SIFE stands for Students in Free Enterprise. Through a collaborative effort between business and education, SIFE Teams improve the quality of life and the standard of living around the world by teaching the principles of market economics, entrepreneurship, business ethics, and personal financial success.  For the second year, PGCC's SIFE team will compete in the Regional Competition in Virginia this spring.  

SIFE is supported by hundreds of America’s most successful corporations and entrepreneurs. Executives from these companies contribute money, volunteer their time to assist local teams, serve as the judges at SIFE competitions, and AGGRESSIVELY recruit SIFE students. In fact, this recruiting process has begun to resemble a professional sports draft as these SIFE companies compete for students they consider to be the best college prospects in the country.
