2017-2018 Graduate Catalog


MBA/MACS/MTS/MDiv Degree Program in Conjunction with Brite Divinity School

The purpose of this program is to prepare students to assume major leadership positions in a wide variety of divinity ministries and non-profit-related organizations. The program is designed to help graduates apply managerial, financial, operational and marketing skills in addition to theological studies and Christian services to religious and non-profit organizations.

Candidates must be admitted to both Neeley’s MBA program and to Brite Divinity School’s Master of Arts in Christian Service (M.A.C.S.), Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) or Master of Divinity (M.Div.) programs. Before taking any business courses the candidate must participate in a START Workshop or other designated orientation, which is held every August. In the event a student elects to complete the MBA without continuing into the Brite degree programs, he/she must meet all remaining requirements for the MBA (i.e., 21 and 15 hours for the full-time and PMBA programs, respectively ).  A student who initiates pursuit of a graduate degree in Brite must complete this number, 21 or 15, of graduate hours in either Brite or Neeley in order to earn their MBA.
