School Of Business & Entrepreneurship

Collaboration and team work are keys that lead to success.

School Of Business & Entrepreneurship

The SOBE provides the most comprehensive and flexible Business as Mission training available in YWAM's University Of The Nations.

School description

The SOBE is a 12-week YWAM school with in-depth training that shifts students understanding of business, while providing a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals needed for a successful Business as Mission venture.  The school can be taken online or in a classroom cohort, with the core instruction taking place through over 525 short videos divided into almost as many learning segments.  Students are presented with regular questions and exercises that promote learning and application to each concept taught. 

Live staff one-on-ones, coaching sessions and weekly school processing times supplement the instruction. Pre-recording the curriculum and delivering it online results in every student, regardless of location and financial resources, receiving the same quality instruction.

Lecture Phase

This will be our first ever bi-lingual (English/Spanish) SOBE done in partnership with YWAM Colorado Springs.  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. Several of the 12 weeks of instruction will be facilitated by the speaker teaching in the online videos.

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.

Why San Jose?

Costa Rica is known for its nature and diversity of animals, landscapes and beach coastline. San Jose is located in the Central Valley, a city in the hearts of mountains. 

Coming to the Pura Vida “pure life” Nation, our location brings a lot of opportunities to spend time with God and an enjoyable place to study the Bible.

As Psalms 23:2 “He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside the still waters”.
