This online pre-college program is perfect for entrepreneurial-minded students who love to dream big, want to make a difference in the world, and believe that anything is possible with a small spark of passion and a lot of hard work.

Considered to be among the top Entrepreneurship programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review, LMU is located in the heart of Silicon Beach - one of the most vibrant startup communities in the world - and our faculty offer a truly unique perspective on enhancing one's entrepreneurial capacity.

Under the virtual guidance of LMU College of Business Administration (CBA) faculty using Zoom web conferencing technology, participants will receive an introduction into the exciting world of building a business from the ground up. Students will put their newfound skills to practice in personal at-home projects as well as online working groups aimed at developing their business ideas and will leave the two-week program having presented their work online to entrepreneurial leaders.

Though our programming will remain online in 2021, the outcomes are still very much the same:

  • Explore a passion that drives you and gain insight into your own entrepreneurial spirit
  • Learn how to work closely with peers on group projects
  • Gain the leadership skills necessary to be successful in business school and beyond
