ABBOTSFORD, B.C.—Columbia Bible College launched its newest academic program in September: the diploma in social entrepreneurship. This two-year program brings together Christian faith-formation classes and a series of foundational business courses, with the goal of equipping students with the passion, entrepreneurial spirit and marketplace skills to make a positive impact within society. The program’s capstone class is entrepreneurial operations, which challenges students to learn to think like entrepreneurs and gives them the opportunity to build and pitch a business plan to a panel of real-world business owners. The diploma in social entrepreneurship program takes its place among a series of new programs now offered at Columbia Bible College, creating new ways to prepare students for careers and ministries in a complex world.
