While pursuing a Global Entrepreneurship degree, gain real-world experience

Why study Global Entrepreneurship at North Central University?

North Central University’s Global Entrepreneurship program is the only one of its kind within the Assemblies of God. We currently have a partnership with AGWM to coordinate the education of any future BAM missionaries. This is instituted at NCU or at The Stone Table, with the use of our curriculum. Because of this partnership, it would be very advantageous for NCU to consider this degree online as quickly as possible.


We currently have another partnership with River Valley Church to educate and provide operational services to the 500 future BAM missionaries that they are putting on the field in the next few years. This is another reason to get this program online quickly. A huge distinctive feature of this degree is the drive for students to launch their business prior to graduation with the option to raise capital funding.

Hands-on Experience That Matters

North Central University’s Global Entrepreneurship major is an exciting new degree that prepares future global workers to engage in business development, community integration, and humanitarian support.

With a Global Entrepreneurship degree, you’ll gain exposure to diverse worldviews, discover innovative approaches to intercultural communication, and learn top-tier business development practices. You’ll even start your own real business before graduation.

Program Highlights

Experiential Learning

At North Central University, we take “real-world experience” seriously. As part of your Global Entrepreneurship degree, you’ll create and build your own global-minded business from the ground up. That includes the opportunity to crowdsource capital funding for your business’s launch.


Real-World Projects

Most job opportunities occur through individual networks. Networking with the right people in your industry can open doors for your future. You need to be a part of a school, like North Central University, that understands this and is doing something about it. Our network offers students premier opportunities for jobs, internships, seminars, and on-site training. For business majors at NCU, we set the stage for you to network with top leaders from the most respected companies.


Degree Plus(+)

One of the primary needs conveyed by our professional partners is project management skills—the ability to execute a project effectively and efficiently. All business majors take a project management course and have the option of completing a proficiency exam to earn your Project Management Certification from the world-class Project Management Institute. Our school is the only institution in the Twin Cities that is currently offering this.

Do Something Initiative

The Do Something Initiative, created by COBAT for the purpose of students going above and beyond learning about their major and disciple, is a four-year track.

Within this initiative, students not only partner with a mentor but select different opportunities within their specific track to further their goals. These opportunities come in an array of options from attending conferences, and networking events, to completing informational interviews as well as student athletics.

When students have completed the Do Something Initiative, they are not only more aware of their career opportunities, but of various industries and sectors within their targeted paths around the world.

Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

North Central University is a university that prioritizes experiential learning for its students. The College of Business and Technology showcases that through the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The IIE is a community in which creativity, hard work, as well as experience collide to form not only a unique college experience but professional opportunities in the workplace. 

One leg of the IIE supports budding entrepreneurs, helping to launch their own personal business dreams. Students are coached and mentored on a one-on-one basis as they dream, conceive, fund, and promote their own company. Where most business colleges might support the launch of only one or two businesses in a year, the IIE has been a part of the creation, collaboration, and culmination of dozens of new businesses. 

The other leg of the institute is the agency. The agency is a place where companies can turn to resources. These resources, completely student-run, range from bookkeeping to marketing, as well as operations, to name a few. Our students get to work with real clients on real issues and get paid for their incredible work.
