Program Highlights

Faculty practitioners


Bethel MBA faculty are accomplished business practitioners with strong academic qualifications who bring high-level vision and hands-on experience to enhance your learning process.

Faith Integration


We welcome all students from all backgrounds, and our faculty teach from a Christian worldview. We emphasize character development that is fueled by genuine transformation.

Flexibility


Our program is designed for professionals who work, have a family, and have community commitments. It can be completed 100% online, in person, or a mix of online and face to face. Courses begin every six weeks, allowing you to focus on one course at a time and start any time throughout the year and finish in as few as 24-30 months.

Holistic leadership development


Job descriptions change, but organizations will always look for ethical leaders. We train you not just for a position, but to be the best person you can be—professionally, intellectually, personally, ethically, and spiritually.

Coaching and networking


A certified career coach will support you and use assessments to help you navigate your next career move. And you’ll build a network for life with your classmates and Bethel’s highly regarded alumni.

Unique dual-degree option


Only Bethel offers a dual-degree option that sets you apart from other MBA graduates. Our MBA program shares leadership courses with our Master of Arts in Strategic Leadership (MASL) program, so you can complete the MASL by adding only six to seven courses after completion of your MBA. In three years, you’ll hold two master’s degrees and possess the technical and leadership training to excel in any environment.

Utilize your credits


We often award up to nine credits toward the 42-credit MBA for those who have master’s level professional certifications. Students in Bethel’s B.S. in Accounting, B.S. in Business Management, and B.S. in Finance programs can take up to three MBA courses instead of adult undergraduate courses to jumpstart their MBA.

Student success


More than 50% of Bethel MBA students find a better job or are promoted while in the program, and many more receive promotions soon after graduation.
