Dual Degree Program

M.A. in Christian Education and M.B.A.
Judy Morris, D.Ed.Min., M.A. in Christian Education Director

Sandra Reid, Ph.D., MBA Director

Home > Graduate Home > MBA

The role of the church leader continues to grow in complexity as the concept of the global community expands.  The pressure to operate as a business with scarce resources is a reality that cannot be ignored.  Many predict that the real mission fields in the future will be through business leaders as they work in the United States, Europe, and third world countries, heightening the demand to blend theological knowledge and training with business theory and application.

Prospective ministry students will pursue this dual degree to obtain and strengthen the skills and competencies needed to be effective in church leadership roles such as executive pastor, division leaders, church planter, and/or global ministry.  In addition, while the vast majority of students applying for admission to this unique, dual degree program may already be serving in a ministry or believe they are called to serve, there will also be students who have started a business career and subsequently sense a call to the ministry.



Existing admission criteria remains the same for both degree programs.

  • An MBA student will need to meet the requirements of and be accepted by the MACE Admission Committee.
  • A MACE student will need to meet the requirements of the MBA Program and be accepted by the Master's Degrees Admission Committee.  



Prerequisite course work must be satisfied for both degree programs.

  • MBA prerequisites are 15 hours at the 5000-level or 21 hours at the undergraduate level.
