Boston University School of Theology (BUSTH) is pleased to announce a new Master of Divinity degree (MDiv) track in Organizational Management. The Master of Divinity degree at BUSTH allows students to specialize coursework toward their unique vocational callings, and this new track aims to prepare students for forms of religious leadership that require organizational and financial management skills.
“The Organizational Management track is appropriate for those pursuing vocations in contexts where creative new models of ministry are required both inside and outside traditional parish structures,” says Bryan Stone, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. “For some, it may mean managing complex religious organizations or offering entrepreneurial leadership to faith-based nonprofits, community organizations, and social ministries.”
The new Organizational Management track of the MDiv degree requires the same core courses as all MDiv tracks, but the track also includes requirements in administration, finance, and management taken at the School of Hospitality Administration, and from among other options across Boston University in non-profit management, fundraising, and philanthropy. BUSTH Master of Theological Studies (MTS) students may also specialize in Organizational Management by following similar course requirements.
Since 1839, Boston University School of Theology has been preparing leaders to do good. A seminary of the United Methodist Church, Boston University School of Theology is a robustly ecumenical institution that welcomes students from diverse faith traditions who are pursuing a wide range of vocations – parish ministry, conflict transformation, chaplaincy, campus ministry, administration, non-profit management, social work, teaching, justice advocacy, peacemaking, interfaith dialogue, and more.
