JP CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY RELEASE: John Paul the Great Catholic University, which opened in September 2006, is a visionary teaching institution focused on and dedicated to molding students into future innovators and creators, leaders and entrepreneurs. Students have the opportunity to acquire a deep and personal knowledge of Jesus Christ. Catholic ethical, moral, and social values provide a guiding compass for everything we do.

The Founders are driven by the vision of creating a world-class university for students seeking degree programs in communications media, business, and technology.

JP Catholic University currently offers two undergraduate Bachelor of Science degrees and two graduate degrees, an MA in Biblical Theology and an MBA with optional emphasis in Film Production or Entrepreneurship & Business Transformation. Read about our degree programs. With our year round structurestudents finish our undergraduate degree program in 3 years and our MBA in one year.

The curriculum rigorously prepares students to challenge a world in which there is an explosion of knowledge but not of understanding, a lack of trust and ethics in leadership and the media, a need for new enterprises that demonstrate a moral and ethical purpose, and an obligation to recognize the intrinsic human value of its workers.

The Senior Business Plan provides a framework for student teams, with diverse skill sets, to spark new ideas, to unleash talent, and to create opportunities by building new entrepreneurial ventures. Experienced faculty guide the incubation and launch of the student businesses into the marketplace.
