Steven Droll

Job Title

  • Associate Professor
    MBA, Graduate School


I have been married for over 30+ years (to the same woman) and have 2 wonderful sons and a daughter-in-law. While I am not a military offspring, it feels like it at times given the number of places I lived: Argentina, Colombia, Connecticut, Georgia, Germany, Honduras, Minnesota, Missouri, South Carolina and Texas. Additionally, I have traveled extensively through Central/South America, Europe and Israel. These travels and living experiences have shaped me into the person I am today, which I hope to share with the Bethel community in and out of the classroom.
