Student Organizations

Student organizations allow our students to expand their education, network, and participate in national competitions.

Collegiate DECA

Collegiate DecaStudents may join Belmont’s distinguished chapter of Collegiate DECA. Collegiate DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in colleges around the globe. DECA competitive events connect college to careers by reinforcing 21st Century Skills: Financial, Economic, Business & Entrepreneurial Literacy; Creativity & Innovations; Critical Thinking & Problem Solving; Communication & Collaboration; and Leadership & Responsibility. Our Belmont team achieved exceptional results at the 2018 International Collegiate DECA Competition. 19 students placed in the Top Ten of their event finals. Even more impressive, our students placed in the top three in an unprecedented number of individual events. These individual achievements led the Belmont chapter to place in two of Collegiate DECA’s five overall career clusters: 1st place in the Entrepreneurship Cluster and 3rd place in the Business Management and Administration Cluster. These are landmark achievements for our chapter and place Belmont in the upper echelon of schools participating in this competition.

EnactusStudents may also join Belmont’s internationally recognized chapter of Enactus. This chapter is made up of a dedicated group of students from majors across campus, such as business, finance, design, political science, social entrepreneurship, computer science, education, and more.

By partnering with nonprofits and social entrepreneurs in Nashville and abroad, our Enactus team works on multiple projects that gives students the opportunity to use what they have learned in the classroom and apply it to real world situations, while at the same time helping those in need.
