About the Conference
The Believers in Business conference is the largest student-run national conference for the equipping and encouraging of Christian MBA students and graduates to live out their lives and careers for the glory of God. It provides a forum for honest discussion on opportunities, challenges, and strategies for following Christ in the marketplace in such a way that people grow in their relationship with the Lord and are equipped to impact others. Each conference draws more than 200 MBA students and business professionals to Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City.
BiB is taking a new approach this year as we engage the economic system at the foundation of much of our work. How should Christians interact with capitalism as agents for God's Kingdom?
Hosted by a coalition of Christian MBA students from top business schools in the US, the conference was founded in 2006 by former Yale professor David W. Miller along with a group of Yale School of Management students. It was initially called the “Yale Christian MBA Business Conference.” Since then, Believers in Business has expanded to include students from other MBA programs. Today, the conference is run by a Student Advisory Board comprising of students frrom multiple MBA programs across the United States and is blessed by the steadfast support of InterVarsity’s National MBA Ministry.
