The M.A. in Leadership is a 36-hour degree program at Dallas Baptist University focused on equipping leaders with the competencies and character essential for effective leadership that glorifies God.


Graduates of the Leadership program at Dallas Baptist University are prepared to lead with distinction in real-world contexts of government, business, education, ministry, and non-profit organizations.

Students are trained in areas recognized as important in the eyes of employers, such as communicating a vision, collaborating with diverse groups, building teams, leading change initiatives, exhibiting emotional intelligence, and resolving conflict. In addition, students develop and strengthen a Christian worldview that prepares students to ethically and morally apply leadership principles. 

More than an Education

Failed leadership often occurs due to the inability of the leader to inspire and achieve shared outcomes in the organization and/or as a result of the leader's poor character. Graduates from DBU’s Master of Arts in Leadership are skilled and capable in effectively leading organizations in new directions by inspiring a shared vision, by encouraging team members to give their best, and by providing an example of integrity that others want to follow.
