AVODA Blue Lab

Experience AVODA Blue Lab in weeks.

Designed to be relentlessly practical, AVODA’s Christian business programs innovatively combine world-class MBA-level business lectures delivered by professors from some of the world’s top universities with interactive workshops, live projects, and real opportunities for investment into new businesses.

We see our mission to be more than just about education. What truly matters to our students’ lives is what happens after graduation. This is why AVODA puts so much focus on aftercare. We support our entrepreneurs by continuing to give mentorship, help them seek investment, and even provide first-year office space. We build an intimate and functioning alumni network, among AVODA’s students, graduates and faculty. This gives all our graduates, regardless of the careers they go on to pursue, a strong support network that nurtures them intellectually, practically, and spiritually.
