More than an Education

A DBU MBA is the premium Christ-centered MBA, taught by exceptional faculty with real-world experience who are dedicated to student learning and development. Small class sizes (13:1 student to faculty ratio) provide an environment where professors invest individually in a mentoring relationship that facilitates learning. Because you are more than just your career, we’re committed to excellence in academics and exceptional investment in your personal development. We are a teaching institution by design, which means our professors' number one priority is to equip you to lead. We exist to prepare you for your moment of opportunity and provide you the support you need when facing your greatest challenges. Our flexible classes are built for the working professional. We provide an exceptional in-class experience with no time or place constraints. Our students enjoy the opportunity to attend classes in person or virtually, interchangeably at their convenience. Students get the same quality of instruction and interaction as the in-person experience, in a way that accounts for their busy lifestyle. This 36-hour, non-thesis master’s degree can be completed in 24 months in a format that is conducive to building more than just a network, but a community.

Marked by Service

At DBU we’re dedicated to your success. We believe that how you achieve is more important than what you achieve. This is why we’re passionate about our mission to produce Christ-centered servant leaders who with every lecture, assignment, project, and engagement, are being equipped to impact the world through their respective calling. An investment in a DBU MBA is an investment that can yield an eternal reward and can equip you for your calling as a values-driven decision-maker who’s prepared for your calling.

"The DBU MBA provides an exceptional in class experience with no time or place constraint. Interact directly with leaders in the field, be personally mentored, be part of an inclusive cohort community, understand what it means to be a Christian leader, never be alone."

Admission Requirements for the M.B.A.

In addition to the first two requirements, the Master's Degree Admission Committee will review the following criteria as it strives to take a holistic view of the applicant in order to determine the likelihood of success in the MBA program. All applicants for the DBU MBA program must meet the following criteria:

  1. A Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution.
  2. Evidence of sound moral character and compatibility with DBU’s mission.
  3. A likelihood for academic success as demonstrated by a GPA of 3.0 or higher. (The Master's Degree Admission Committee may take into consideration the student's performance in the last 60 hours of undergraduate course work as it reviews undergraduate performance.)
  4. A minimum Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score of 425.
  5. Five or more years of significant, substantive managerial/leadership experience that may be evidenced through resumé review, applicant interview, or employer recommendations.
  6. 12 hours of graduate work from an accredited institution with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher.

Applicants who meet criteria 1, 2, and 3, in combination with one of criteria 4-6, may be granted Full Admission.

Steven Boyd

Legislative Correspondent - US Capitol

In my final semester in the DBU MBA program, I received a job offer in Washington DC from a United States Senator. As a Legislative Correspondent for Senator James Lankford, I handle the trade and foreign affairs portfolio.

DBU prepared me well for this assignment not only by providing me with the necessary tools and expertise to critically analyze trade data and financial information but also with the character formation and leadership skills to stand out as a light for Christ in our Nation’s Capitol. All careers are an opportunity to serve people. Whether you work for a major corporation, local non-profit, or the United States Senate, our task as Christian servant-leaders is to leverage our influence and skills to help others thrive and flourish. Make the most of every opportunity while you’re still a student. Use your status as an MBA student to request meetings or informational interviews with business and civic leaders whom you admire. Get out of your comfort zone and grab coffee with every professor and as many classmates as you can. You never know what you will learn from them or how you might help each other in the future! Life is all about relationships – lean into them to experience it fully.
