MBA: Master of Business Administration

Any MBA can improve your management skills. Ours will change your life.

You’re interested in an MBA because you want to become a better manager, improve your job opportunities, get a raise, or receive a promotion. Those are reasonable goals, ones we can help you achieve. But to be honest, any MBA program can improve your management skills. At Bethel, we’re not satisfied to be just any MBA program. Here, we’re committed to transformation. We address your development as a whole person: professionally, intellectually, personally, ethically, and spiritually. When you graduate with an MBA from Bethel, you’ll be a better leader and manager, yes, but also a better person. Whatever your leadership and management gifts now, you’ll be challenged to take them to the next level. You will not only develop greater confidence and passion, but greater depth of character, wisdom, and professionalism. We’ll train you to become the kind of discerning, ethical leader and manager that organizations are looking to hire and promote.

Preparing Ethical Leaders

Today’s society is suffering from a deficit of ethical leadership. At Bethel, we aim to change that. Our courses are open to all students, but our faculty teach from a Christian worldview that is an essential and distinctive part of Bethel’s DNA. We don’t just teach ethics—we live them.

Our faith is central to everything we do. We approach education holistically, preparing you personally, ethically, and spiritually as well as professionally and intellectually. You’ll graduate from Bethel with more than an MBA. You’ll strengthen your character, broaden your perspective, deepen your compassion—and in the process become the kind of business leader organizations are looking for.
