MBA Ministry was started in the early 1990s by students at Harvard Business School and Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management.
Here’s how the organization—affiliated with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA and the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students—describes itself: “Jesus Christ is working on MBA campuses around the country and in the private sector at large, raising up Christian leaders who seek God in their professional and private lives. As C.S. Lewis would say, ‘Aslan is on the move!’ As the only national MBA Ministry in the United States, we have fellowships or relationships on 22 of the top MBA programs across the country, for example, Harvard, Kellogg, Chicago Booth, Yale, UCLA, and Stanford…More than 300 students and faculty are meaningfully involved with these fellowships.”
What does MBA Ministry do exactly? It helps students, alums, faculty, and administrators “build relationships and community,” promotes “the transformation of all involved to be more and more the image of Christ,” address the “spiritual, economic, and social poverty of MBAs and the world,” and encourages “students and alumni to live their faith out holistically, including at work.”
More specifically, it sponsors an annual Believers in Business Conference, supports the formation of fellowships on individual business school campuses, enables members and recruiters to access a “National Christian MBA Resume Book,” supports related groups such Graduate & Faculty Ministries (GFM) and Emerging Scholars Network, and helps members connect through social media such Facebook and LinkedIn.
