Brite Divinity School and Texas Christian University have joined together to offer students the opportunity to earn masters degrees from each institution. These programs allow students to integrate advanced learning across professional fields and to prepare to serve in a wide variety of ministerial settings and non-profit organizations.
Brite Divinity School in collaboration with the Neeley School of Business: M.Div./M.B.A., M.A.T.M./M.B.A. and M.T.S./M.B.A.
Candidates must be admitted to Neeley’s MBA program and to Brite’s Master of Arts in Theology and Ministry (M.A.T.M.), 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, which is held every August. In the event a student elects to complete only one degree after having been admitted to both programs, previously allowed course substitutions will be honored and he/she must then meet all remaining requirements at the degree granting institution.
The M.B.A.-M.A.T.M. and M.B.A.-M.T.S. degrees require 33 credit hours from the Neeley School of Business and 39-40 credit hours from Brite Divinity School. The M.B.A.-M.Div. requires 33 credit hours from the Neeley School of Business and 69 hours from Brite Divinity School. Students will transfer nine hours of coursework completed at the Neeley School of Business to meet elective hours toward the M.A.T.M. and M.T.S. degrees and twelve hours of coursework toward electives in the M.Div. program. Students in Neeley’s full-time M.B.A. program will transfer 21 hours from coursework completed at Brite toward their electives. Students in the Professional M.B.A. program will transfer 15 hours from coursework completed at Brite toward their electives. The full-time M.B.A. program will be completed in 3 semesters, while the professional program would normally require 6 semesters.
