Bethel was the only school that kept in contact with me continually. I really knew they wanted me to be here… they knew who I was instead of just a name on a list of thousands of students.

Whatever your dream, a business degree from Bethel College can help get you there.

The Bachelor of Science in business administration program will give you a broad-based education in all functional areas of business.

After successfully completing the business administration degree, you will be able to:

  • Drive strategy, and assist with decision-making, in the business environment.
  • Critically evaluate qualitative and quantitative data to positively impact their organizations ability to act.
  • Understand processes and success strategies for 21st-century entrepreneurship.
  • Manage people, time and resources by using effective employment practices.
  • Interpret data to formulate integrated, effective target market communication strategies.
  • Design and execute personal and employee development systems to enhance job performance and leadership skills.

You will leave Bethel not only with subject-area knowledge, but also actual hands-on learning. Internships are a critical experience, in which you apply newly acquired academic learning and develop real skills that will help you land that first job. If additional education is in your future, Bethel’s business program will provide a solid foundation for graduate level coursework.

Supplement your core business knowledge by choosing a concentration in:

  • Accounting
