A top business program, defined by faith

At Bethel, we believe that business is a tool that can improve the human condition. We prepare students with the skills and knowledge they need to find success in fulfilling careers. But more importantly, we aim to develop students who are committed to the greater good. It’s about hands-on experience, distinguished faculty, academic, personal, and spiritual development, global awareness, valuable networking, and an active business community—all within a Christian learning environment. It’s about taking our faith in Christ and integrating it into everything we learn, into everything we do, so we can accomplish incredible things—in our careers, in our communities, and in our world.
