OVERVIEW

JPCatholic exists for one reason: to Impact Culture for Christ. The world is not impacted through law and policies alone, and businesses have a sweeping influence over the culture at large. That's why the business program at JPCatholic is so closely tied to our mission - to truly change the culture for the better, we must know how to live and work ethically, not just strive for efficiency and bottom line. You'll learn your trade, and how to guide your skills through the teachings and life of Jesus Christ and his Church.

 

At JPCatholic, you’ll have the option to choose from three emphases: Creative Entrepreneurship, Leadership & Management, Sales & Marketing. The best way to learn is by doing, and applied learning is at the core of the entire business program. In fact, in our Business Launchpad, you have the chance to start your company while you’re still a student, guided by the mentorship of faculty who have been in your shoes.

 

“The degree of well-being that society enjoys today would have been impossible without the dynamic figure of the entrepreneur, whose function consists in organizing human labor and the means of production in order to produce goods and services.”

 

POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II
