Dual Degree: Master of Business Administration and Master of Information Technology Management

Earn a dual degree in two of our popular graduate degree programs at Belhaven University! The Master of Business Administration degree program (MBA) integrates the sophisticated academic world, the practical and technologically dependent career world, and the eternal world of Christian faith into a business curriculum that fits into your busy life. Students in the MBA program develop these qualities through an intense program that both advocates high academic standards and validates the Christian values to which the University, the School of Business Administration, and each faculty member are totally committed.

The Master of Science in Information Technology Management (MSITM) degree is a blend of technology and management courses that prepares IT professionals to advance into leadership roles. This program explores leadership, project management, financial analysis, current and emerging technologies, cyber law, and strategic planning all from a Christian perspective. The masters in information technology management degree provides you with the skills you will need to lead in technology focused organizations and provides a broad overview of how technology is utilized by organizations and individuals within the organization.

These graduate degree programs taught from an accredited university, will challenge, inspire, and help you to move your career forward.

In the hybrid with Curricular Practical Training (CPT) program, classes are offered in manageable, 14 week terms consisting of one hybrid class with a mandatory weekend face-to-face residency and one online class. Classes are a combination of 14 week and 7 week formats. Project Team activities within each course enhance the learning process and the development of problem-solving skills, while forming the essential quality of teamwork.
