Our Purpose and Vision

The World Leaders Forum does more than offer our students and area professionals the opportunity to be in the presence of and be inspired by World Leaders, it serves as a catalyst to raise the capital necessary to begin an Entrepreneurial Studies Program at Judson University. One dream to fund another - the cycle continues as future leaders come to Judson with aspirations of acquiring the knowledge and connections necessary to give their entrepreneurial dreams life.
