Course Description

The School of Business & Entrepreneurship (SOBE) teaches you to use business as a tool to see God’s redemption and transformation in a culture with a specific focus of impacting the least-reached peoples on the planet. Pioneered globally in YWAM at our campus in 2014, the SOBE is a ground-breaking secondary course that introduces fundamental core business topics.

Our speakers include BAM practitioners from the field, as well as successful business people with missions experience from our local community. Running parallel to the teaching, students are writing a business plan, incorporating all that they have learned from each speaker. Our business experienced staff and our network of BAM mentors come alongside the students throughout the weeks to assist them.

Course content includes:

  • Marketing
  • Relational Sales
  • Operations and Fulfillment
  • Product Development
  • Brand Management
  • Lean Startup/Minimum Viable Product
  • Business Law
  • Business Finance
  • Introduction to Business as Mission
  • The Biblical Purpose and Values of Business
  • Integrating the Business and the Mission
  • Apostolic Entrepreneurship
  • Weekly BAM Case Studies

This cohort option is an alternative to our 12-week Online SOBE. Students who want more live elements to the school will want to consider coming to our YWAM Colorado Springs Campus to take the online school this way. Student will meet together daily in a classroom to take the online course together.  This will allow them to process together in more depth what they are learning.  Many of these class times will be facilitated by a SOBE staff person.  At least two of the 12 weeks of instruction will be replaced with live speaker instruction as well. They will be teaching the same material as the online student are receiving. The cohort will also include a couple field trip to missional businesses near our YWAM campus.

Due to our campus calendar not accommodating a 12-week schedule, student who participate in the cohort will need to complete the week one modules prior to their arrival on April 7th.  The cohort will then include weeks 2-12.

The cohort students will continue to interact with the online students as they would in every Online SOBE.  This means participating on Friday live zoom events with all the students around the globe and with that weeks instructors.
