The Master of Divinity/Master of Business Administration (M.Div./M.B.A.) program prepares students for numerous ministerial contexts, including congregations, religious non-profits, religiously affiliated organizations, and church agencies. As religious institutions and congregations continue to morph into complex organizations and as non-profits and other religiously affiliated organizations continue to proliferate, the need continues to grow for qualified, competent, and well-educated individuals who understand and appreciate the mission of such institutions. Individuals in this program will benefit from the skill set developed through the Master of Business Administration but they will also gain through the Master of Divinity degree the biblical, theological, and ministerial formation necessary to serve in such contexts. The M.Div./M.B.A. joint degree meets the standard requirements of both graduate degree plans.
Students have two options for starting their joint degree.
Prospective students will declare their intent to enroll in the joint degree with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at Truett Seminary and the Graduate Associate Dean of the Business School. Students will be required to make formal application to each academic unit.
Since both degrees are awarded simultaneously, all requirements in both schools must be completed in order to receive either degree.
