Master of Arts in Global Leadership/Master of Arts in Management


The Master of Arts in Global Leadership and Master of Arts in Management dual degree program provides students with an integrated approach to the study of international business, cross-cultural communication dynamics, and Christian witness in a multi-national and multi-cultural environment. The dual degree will be most relevant to students who plan to manage businesses in a global setting and who are committed to integrating faith and business in diverse cultural settings. Because the business environment is dynamic, special attention is given to adapting to organizational change and becoming a change agent.
