Indonesia needs a lot of new entrepreneurs to explore our natural resources and indigenous technology and to strengthen our country’s economy. However, business is often viewed as a difficult act by the students of English Program. English for Business and Economy (EBE) course is intended to provide students with real business activities. The research problem focussed on whether the curriculum devised for EBE can effectively engage students in a real business activity. The aim of this study was to find out students engagement in business and to give a better understanding on EBE curriculum and to give them motivation to become new millenials entrepreneurs. To answer the research problem, we use Likert scale survey on google form which was distributed to 110 students and also their opinion was recorded by open-ended questions. The result of the research showed that the students appreciate business and are inspired to begin their own business ventures. To conclude, EBE curriculum has potential impact in creating new millennials entrepreneurs as our country needed.
