COLLEGE INITIATIVE*

Our College Initiative aims to empower purpose-driven leaders. Grounded in a biblical worldview, our mission is to shape influencers who change the world for Jesus. Join us and discover your path to impact.

Our Flagship Program: B.S. Entrepreneurship

In the words of John Rockefeller, the revered Founder of Standard Oil and a devout Christian entrepreneur, “I believe the power to make money is a gift from God just as are the instincts for art, literature, the doctor’s talent, the nurse’s, yours: to be developed and used for the best of our ability for the good of mankind.” 

At LAIC, we echo this sentiment, recognizing entrepreneurship as a divine calling—a journey of purpose and impact. Inspired by this ethos, our pioneering program is dedicated to nurturing visionary entrepreneurs poised to redefine industries through biblically grounded innovation.

With specialized tracks in Family Business Entrepreneurship, Corporate Innovation, and Technology Entrepreneurship, the program is tailored to the need to learn about diverse entrepreneurial pursuits. Students embark on a transformative journey to fulfill their potential and serve their communities.
