ENTREPRENEURIALISM AND GLOBAL LEADERSHIP (EGL)
WELCOME TO EGL
EGL students will learn the entrepreneurial spirit, real business practices, and effective leadership skills for a global marketplace from actual entrepreneurs and business leaders. It is no understatement to say that our nation was built and is sustained by entrepreneurs who represent the backbone of the U.S. economy. Students in this concentration will gain skills and knowledge that will serve them throughout their entire life. Perhaps most importantly, they will reflect upon how they, as a future leaders, can honor God through their work and leadership on a global platform.

“The EGL program provided me with opportunities to explore my career interests earlier than most, while gaining valuable insights into the business world. I personally benefitted tremendously from both its curriculum and the activities I was involved in, like the annual ‘Big Pitch’ competition and the incredible New York Business Plunge. EGL played a major role in my decision to study business in the future, and the experiences I had throughout high school made my application stand out during the college admissions process.”
