Associate Dean for Graduate Business Programs: Patsy Norman
Associate Dean for Truett Seminary: Dennis Tucker
The MBA/MDiv joint degree is designed to prepare ministers who can implement financial strategies, transform organizational behavior, and ensure financial integrity in their congregations and/or non-profit organizations. Students interested in a career requiring complementary skills in both business and Ministry may complete the Master of Divinity and MBA degrees concurrently. By proper course selection of courses, students can save up to 35 hours compared to the normal requirements of the two separate degrees. Students should consult with advisors in both the seminary and business to determine the best sequence of courses.
Students must apply and be accepted separately into both programs. The GMAT or GRE exam is required for the MBA degree. Additional admissions requirements for the MBA can be found under the Business School Admissions.
Candidates for the joint MBA/Master of Divinity degree must complete 38 core hours for MBA and 78 core hours for Master of Divinity. By proper selection of course work, it may be possible to reduce the requirements of the joint degree by up to 35 hours compared to the normal requirements of the two degrees completed separately. Since both degrees are awarded simultaneously, all requirements in both programs must be completed in order to receive either degree. Students are encouraged to contact appropriate advisors in each program for further details.
