Networking and Personal Coaching
At Bethel, we know that it’s the relationships you build that grow your career. That’s why we pack our program full of opportunities to develop networking skills and get advice from well-respected mentors.
Networking with Business Leaders
MBA students engage with local business leaders through projects and interviews. Through their ability to work collaboratively and graciously, they get noticed in the marketplace and build confidence in their communication and leadership skills.
One-on-one coaching sessions help you chart your professional and personal growth. Each student has the opportunity to attend 6 personal coaching sessions with executives, consultants, and faculty. In the coaching sessions, you will:
- Create a strategy for your career and personal growth.
- Match your strengths to your career path.
- Learn to lead from your values.
- Get advice on career issues you face.
Bethel supports its MBA students in a number of ways.
MBA Skills Seminars. If you feel you need to boost your skills, we offer inexpensive 4-hour seminars that fit with your program schedule.
- Managerial finance
Students may test out of all the seminars except the research seminar through an open-book assessment. Talk to an enrollment counselor about your options for testing out.
Portfolio advising. We’re here to help you build a portfolio to display your accomplishments in a succinct and professional manner. The portfolio might contain samples of your academic work, research, leadership, or service, as well as evidence of your work experience and skills.
