The program has been designed to help entrepreneurs develop effective innovation, leadership, and management skills in the business arena from a distinctly biblical perspective. The curriculum is organized to provide a greater understanding of the management field, the communication tools necessary to interact with diverse stakeholders, and the biblical guardrails for a Christian who initiates and grows commercial ventures.
