Dual Degree Program
Sandra Reid, Ph.D., Master of Business Administration Program Director
Sena Baker, Ed.D. , M.Ed. in Higher Education Program Director
The dual Master of Education in Higher Education and Master of Business Administration degree is a 54-hour, non-thesis program. The program consists of a Higher Education required curriculum of 24 hours and a Master of Business Administration required curriculum of 24 hours with six credit hours of required shared curriculum.
Studies in Higher Education provide individuals who are interested in a variety of areas in higher education with the opportunity to explore, with breadth and depth, the various facets of post-secondary institutions. The purpose of the MBA is to prepare students for successful and rewarding careers in a global business environment regardless their chosen vocation. Faculty and staff members work closely with students to equip them with the knowledge and skills for future employment and leadership opportunities. The dual degree will give students the best of both worlds as the concepts are intertwined and integrated from a Christian perspective.
Individuals who are interested in higher education administration, student personnel work, university development/advancement, or teaching on the college level will enhance their immediate value to an organization with heightened leadership and analytical skills developed within the M.B.A. course of study. Individuals sensing God’s calling to be in higher education in any of these areas, or those who are in business and who feel called to serve in higher education administration, will be greatly benefitted by the M.B.A. and M.Ed. in Higher Education dual degree.
In order to pursue a Dual Master's Degree program, the applicant must apply to, meet the existing admission requirements for, and be accepted into each of the master's degrees which comprise the dual degree program.
