Our faculty consists of experienced entrepreneurs who have not only started their own businesses but want to educate the next generation on how to build their own. We see to it that students have accessible contact with successful entrepreneurs and offer them exposure to rapid-growth companies.

Our programs provide a distinctive approach to university entrepreneurship education. They challenge students to value the person along with achieving profitability. 

We are inspired by Pope Francis, who said that business is "a noble vocation, provided that those engaged in it see themselves challenged by a greater meaning in life; this will enable them truly to serve the common good by striving to increase the goods of this world and to make them more accessible to all."

We aim to inspire and equip our students with the virtues, skills, and initiative needed to launch ventures for impact as principled entrepreneurs, integrating virtue with sound business practice, and designing dynamic enterprises that create value for customers and allow employees to flourish.
