Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Dallas Baptist University have partnered together to offer a joint Master of Divinity/Master of Business Administration degree.
Under this agreement, effective with the fall 2020 semester, graduate students who meet both institution’s requirements for admission and prerequisites for both schools can earn the MDiv from Southwestern Seminary and the MBA from DBU with certain coursework at each institution satisfying requirements for coursework at the partner institution.
With this new dual degree, we hope that many men and women would further prepare themselves not only with a Master of Divinity but with an MBA that would serve them all over the world in terms of the mission field and opportunities for them to take the Gospel to every tribe, every tongue, every nation, and every people.
This new degree was formally announced on October 27, 2020. Learn more about this partnership in the official press release.
The footage from the official October 27 press release is available for viewing on YouTube.

The MDiv MBA dual degree between SWBTS and DBU allows students to bring in up to 12 hours from one degree into another, thus cutting the time required to complete both degrees by a semester. Students can bring in 6 hours from the M.Div into their MBA core, or complete 12 hours at SWBTS to fulfill the MBA Management Concentration at DBU, or use a MBA concentration in Non-profit Leadership to fulfill their SWBTS free elective requirements.
