Bethel University is a case-study in forward-thinking and positive change. Established in 1842 in McKenzie, TN, by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Bethel College became Bethel University in 2009. With this transformation came explosive growth in academic specialties, geographic reach and enrollment. Now boasting six campuses and classroom locations throughout the state of Tennessee -- as well as its top-notch online degree programs ? Bethel is one of the fastest-growing universities in the South.
Major shifts are once again underway at Bethel?this time, within the College of Professional Studies. Since 2012, the college has enhanced its online M.B.A. program with five specialty tracks, including Information Technology and Human Resource Management. Undergraduate students can earn an accelerated, accredited bachelor?s degree in Management and Organizational Development while attending class at a convenient location just one night per week, or work toward a bachelor?s in Organizational Leadership completely online. These advancements reflect Bethel?s ongoing mission: to arm students with the skills and confidence to succeed, and lead, in their chosen fields.
