A dual Master of Theological Studies and Master of Business Administration (MTS/MBA) is offered in cooperation with the Goizueta Business School. This program allows the MTS and MBA degrees to be earned in three years instead of the usual four to attain the degrees separately. Candidates for the dual-degree program must apply to and be accepted by both Candler and Goizueta. The schools maintain independent application procedures. Typically, the first year is spent at Candler and the second year is spent at Goizueta. The student must register and pay tuition for three semesters in Goizueta and three semesters in Candler but may take courses in either school. Candler scholarships and grants are applicable only to those semesters in which the student is in residency in the School of Theology. In order to meet degree requirements for the MDiv, the student must complete a minimum of 39 hours at Candler, including either the MTS Thesis (MTS502) or MTS Integrative Paper (MTS503). All requirements are the same as a traditional MTS student but with fewer elective hours. For information on the MTS portion of the MTS/MBA, contact the Candler registrar’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
