Our Weekend Honors Program on “Entrepreneurship & Human Flourishing” is hosted in a different city each fall semester. This year, the program will be hosted in Chicago, IL on October 29-31, 2021 in partnership with Wheaton College’s Center for Faith & Innovation. The program focuses on business and entrepreneurship and is kept intentionally small (only 25 undergraduates are chosen for each cohort) in order to foster authentic relationships amongst members of the group. Unlike a traditional academic seminar, the program consists primarily of hands-on exercises and activities that encourage entrepreneurial thinking. It also provides a unique chance for students to explore questions about personal vocation and calling, as well as the proper role of faith and ethics in business through discussions and high-level networking opportunities.
For the first time this year, we are also offering a concurrent program specifically designed for Christian MBA students. For further information, please proceed to the application page.
Applications are now closed for the 2021 program. For the 2022 program, the applications will open in July 2022.
Past participants have said:
“It is a great chance to be around like-minded people who understand the impact of business in the Kingdom of God. You will come away from it either affirmed in what you hope to do or re-directed in a powerful way for what God is calling you to in the marketplace.”
“This weekend taught me so much about myself and what my calling could really look like in the future. It reframed my understanding of faith in business and encouraged me in ways that I never could have foreseen.”
