Master of Religious Business Administration

Program Description

The Master of Religious Business Administration (2 years program/60 units) is designed for professionals whose career and management responsibilities exceed a single functional specialty, and who require higher levels of knowledge and skills in the field to sharpen their competency spectrum. The emphasis is on providing students with an interdisciplinary, integrated, and applied approach where complex organizational knowledge and managerial skills are mastered. This objective of the program is meant to provide an executive-level of critical thinking and systematic thought, team building, decision making, and leadership.

The program includes ten (10) pre-determined core business courses and two (2) elective courses that every student can select from a list of courses offered by the School of Business Administration at Ezra University based upon their own interests and concentration focus in the varied areas of business administration. For purposes of these two elective courses, every student may opt for any combination of graduate-level elective courses offered by the School of Business Administration at Ezra University, choosing from anyone of three academic areas: International Business, Leadership, and Marketing.

The core business courses include (but are not limited to) studies in accounting, business ethics, business law, finance,  human resource management, international business, organizational management, strategic management, and statistical analysis. Every course has an emphasis on ethical business behavior and conduct as well as responsible business practices in an increasingly-pluralistic, global society.  As with our other programs, there is a strong emphasis on Biblical values and Theological education.  Courses in the Business major will be taught through the lenses of Christian principles.
