Moody Bible Institute Reviews
I am studying at Moody Aviation, a branch of MBI. I love it because of the high standards in education, student life, and pretty much every other area! The faculty are devoted to making it the best possible education and as affordable as possible. As a missionary training school, they are constantly helping us with internal and external scholarships and they even have volunteer professors!
Moody has been a very valuable experience. I have been enrolled in their distance learning program and have found it very valuable. They have done a great job of deepening my knowledge and understanding of the Bible, while also balancing that out with growing my academic knowledge and skill. The professors are open and easy to communicate with, and the textbooks are quite valuable. They also encourage community between the students with online discussion boards that serve as a sort of miniature assignment that also results in discussion between the students. To top it all off the distance learning is almost as cheap as my local community college, but with all of the benefits and the degree of a four year university. It has been well worth it. I have definitely valued my time there and look forward to the future of my education.
MBI is a Bible college focused on solid Theology which holds God in great respect. Because of this, the campus fosters an encouraging environment for its students. Professors truly do care about each person in their class, are mindful of their struggles, and are always open to meet and answer questions. I’m really benefiting from the education I’m getting here as well!
