Master of Arts in Global Leadership
Bob Garrett, Ph.D., Director

*PLEASE NOTE: This degree plan is for students who begin the program in the Summer 2015 Semester.

Designed for global-thinking leaders who aspire to forge new paradigms for working in international or multicultural environments, the Master of Arts in Global Leadership explores ways to lead in today's rapidly changing world of globalization, resurgent cultural values, religions, clashing worldviews, professional domains, and business ventures. Students must be highly motivated self-starters with innovative ideas who are eager to make a difference in the world. Global Leadership consists of connecting with people in other cultures and societies around the globe, and finding ways to exert a positive influence in their lives. Learning the intercultural skills and understanding multiethnic dynamics are crucial skills for leadership in today's increasingly multicultural and multiethnic environments.

Graduates have strong intercultural skills with a calling to Christian ministry, and often serve as 21st century missionaries, as missions mobilizers, as church planters, as kingdom professionals doing business as missions, as Ministers of Missions on a church staff, as cell group leaders or house church workers, as denominational and parachurch organization leaders, or doing nontraditional ministry in urban and intercultural settings.


Student Testimonial

"I have learned more about the love of Christ and living out my burden for the lost through the M. A. in Global Leadership program at DBU than ever before.  I couldn't ask for a better institution to learn not only academics, but also how to live out servant leadership in my everyday life.  I hope to take what I have learned and apply it to the mission field one day, whether that be internationally or right in my own neighborhood." - Stephanie Johnson

"A few years after college, I found myself working for an organization that plans global service projects, and I began to consider graduate school. I looked at programs at other schools, but the M.A. in Global Leadership was obviously the best fit for combining leadership skills and ministry." -Susan Williams
