Bill Tibbetts

Dean of the College of Business and Technology; Professor

Bill has been teaching at North Central since 2008. He graduated from Purdue University with intentions to be the next Bob Woodward of business journalism. The Lord redirected his journey, leading him to Washington DC, where he became an executive of a multi-million dollar international nonprofit. He later relocated to the Midwest to be closer to family and transitioned into executive leadership for a $35 billion finance company.

WHAT ARE YOUR AREAS OF EXPERTISE?

Business Strategy and Marketing, with a concentration in organizational development and marketing analytics. Because God calls us to be stewards of his creation, we are all, therefore, called to be strategists. Impact is significantly increased when an organization can properly align their internal capabilities and resources with an understanding of what their specific market is demanding.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT TEACHING AT NORTH CENTRAL?

North Central fosters the opportunity to engage with students on relevant knowledge, Christian character, and professional skills unlike any other university. I thrive on mentoring students to discover God’s will for their future and then preparing them to lead organizations that innovate, grow, and deliver world-class results.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE CLASSES TO TEACH?

One of my favorite classes to teach is Introduction to Business, a place for most students’ introduction to the subject matter.
