Master of Business Administration and Master of Education in Higher Education Dual Degree Program
Sandra Reid, Ph.D., M.B.A. Program Director
Mamo Ishida, M.Ed. in Higher Education Program Director
Studies in Higher Education provide individuals who are interested in a variety of areas in higher education with the opportunity to explore, with breadth and depth, the various facets of post-secondary institutions. The purpose of the M.B.A. is to prepare students for successful and rewarding careers in a global business environment regardless their chosen vocation. Faculty and staff members work closely with students to equip them with the knowledge and skills for future employment and leadership opportunities. The dual degree will give students the best of both worlds as the concepts are intertwined and integrated from a Christian perspective.
Individuals who are interested in higher education administration, student personnel work, university development/advancement, or teaching on the college level will enhance their immediate value to an organization with heightened leadership and analytical skills developed within the M.B.A. course of study. Individuals sensing God’s calling to be in higher education in any of these areas, or those who are in business and who feel called to serve in higher education administration, will be greatly benefitted by the M.B.A. and M.Ed. in Higher Education dual degree.
In order to pursue a Dual Master's Degree program, the applicant must apply to, meet the existing admission requirements for, and be accepted into each of the master's degrees which comprise the dual degree program.
Prerequisite course work must be satisfied for both degree programs.
Continuance in the MEDHE program past the first six (6) hours is pending submission of a satisfactory score on the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) or Graduate Record Examinations® (GRE®).
