Master of Arts in Theological Studies/Master of Business Administration
Those called to pastoral ministry and other ministry-related leadership vocations in the 21st century are well-advised to have an understanding of the “business side” of their particular ministry context. The MA in Theological Studies/MBA dual degree program is creatively designed to address the unique needs of current and potential students who are seeking graduate-level education and training in the areas of ministry and business administration.
