Character-based Leadership Development
At Bethel, our faith is central to everything we do. We’ll help you develop as a whole person so you have a well-rounded foundation for character-based leadership. We’ll prepare you to use your business skills to serve others. Our professors—who model character from their own experience—will guide you as you explore the intersection of faith and work. And you’ll come to understand your strengths as you pursue your goals.
Our MBA features highly-regarded graduates, distinguished faculty, relevant instruction, a convenient schedule, valuable networking, and community, all within a Christian learning environment. You’ll be prepared to make a difference in our world and inspire others to use their own God-given talents to accomplish incredible things.

Bethel's MBA professors are business leaders who bring personal experience into the classroom to make coursework relevant to the real world.
Community and connection
You’ll take all of your classes with the same group of peers, fostering meaningful friendships, lifelong connections, and a valuable network.
God created each of us with unique gifts. As you work with personal coaches, get feedback from instructors and classmates, and integrate insights from strengths assessments throughout the program, you’ll learn how to use your talents to make a greater impact and pursue your goals.
Faith and work integration
Our program is designed to help you integrate faith and work on a personal and professional level. In every course you’ll be challenged to find the connection between subject matter and biblical principles.
We’re committed to helping you succeed from admission to graduation. Rather than focusing on the results of one entrance exam for admission, we look for well-rounded people with work experience who can bring new perspectives into the classroom. And once you're here, you'll be supported by advisors and professors who will make sure you have everything you need.
We know many of our MBA students work full time, have families, and are involved in their community while in graduate school. Our schedules make it easier for you to earn your degree by having limited in-class time so you can complete your assignments when it works best for you.
Teamwork is integrated throughout the program. Bethel blends it into each course with real-life practicality. The ability to work with others is an absolute necessity in any organization, and I’ve learned to embrace world views and skill sets which are different from mine.Shawn Ingvaldsen '14
