Youth and Family Ministry (BS) + MBA Dual-Level Program
Gain the biblical knowledge and ministry philosophy of a youth and family ministry degree alongside the comprehensive business understanding of an MBA – all in as few as five years.
Why Youth and Family Ministry (BS) + MBA?
A Youth and Family Ministry degree gives you a deep knowledge of the Bible and church leadership with a particular focus on ministry to young people and their families. Additionally, a Master of Business offers the quantitative and operational skills necessary to help drive business success, but also understand the importance of organizational dynamics and the essential values required for ethical, moral, and wise leadership in today’s marketplace, church, or parachurch ministry. This combination of degrees sets you apart in the job market and allows for more opportunities for growth in your career.
How it Works
This program condenses six years of study (four-year bachelor’s + two-year master’s) into just five years by starting master-level courses as early as your junior year. By completing both degrees together, you will also continue to receive your undergraduate scholarships and financial aid for all five years of study, which will save you thousands of dollars.
