San Diego, Calif., Jul 20, 2004 / 22:00 pm
A new Catholic university is planning to open its doors in San Diego in the fall of 2005. The educational institution, simply called New Catholic University (NCU), will offer a hands-on curriculum, unique for its emphasis on innovation, entrepreneurship and ethical leadership.
The university, which filed for state approval this month and has supporters praying for its success, will offer degree programs in technology, business and mass media communications.
In all academic disciplines, NCU hopes to foster an entrepreneurial spirit and encourage leadership and innovation, guided by the spiritual, moral and social teachings of Jesus Christ.
The university’s Senior Business Plan, a two-year business planning and implementation exercise, will require all students, regardless of major, to develop a viable business enterprise before graduation. Faculty will serve as mentors, sharing their personal experience and offering their unique guidance.
