The Anchor Retreat

The Anchor Retreat is the shared experience and connection point for Christ-centered MBA students who will go on to be the world’s greatest business leaders. A place where students will enjoy God's creation together, be sharpened by faithful senior executives, meditate on scripture in community, and build relationships for the sake of the gospel.

The 2023 Anchor Retreat is a unique opportunity for incoming and current MBA students to connect, have fun, and be anchored in their faith for the upcoming academic year. This multi-day retreat sets the stage for each school year and enables us, who love Jesus, the opportunity to devote ourselves to deepening our faith as we pursue our degrees. It is a pivotal time and a unique opportunity to connect with fellow students, deepening our community, before our commitments increase during the academic year. Over three days, we’ll pray and worship together, hear from godly business leaders, share meals, and hang out!

The Anchor Retreat is led by a team of six students from MBA Programs across the U.S. and is sponsored by InterVarsity's MBA Ministry. This student team is preparing the best possible experience for all attendees. We are excited to announce that a grant has been provided to cover most of the cost of hosting the Retreat at an Airbnb in Breckenridge, CO, enabling us to offer this year's event at $225 (early bird registration). We want everyone to be able to join us, so please apply for a needs-based scholarship if finances are holding you back.

Our Goals

Integration: Further the integration of faith and vocation among MBA students as a part of the whole-life integration, in part, by providing examples of seasoned leaders walking faithfully, pre-retreat readings, and post-retreat video follow-ups.

Community and Spiritual Formation: Foster intimate relationships with fellow believers across MBA programs. This cross-pollination is a source of encouragement and co-labor for advancing the Gospel on campus and in the workplace and preparing for our program's spiritual challenges.

Outreach and Impact: Equip fellow students to share the love of Christ in the uniquely secular cultures we are entering on campus and in the workplace. 



Like a weekend getaway with your friends, we have reserved large, luxury vacation rental homes for the Anchor Retreat.
