Lead with distinction

The Graduate School at Dallas Baptist University offers learning options that easily integrate into your life and step beyond the bounds of a traditional graduate studies program. DBU meets you where you are so you can become an effective servant leader.

Flexible timing
DBU’s graduate programs allow students to set their own pace and offer the flexibility to make a schedule that works for the busy professional. DBU also offers a one-year MBA track. 

Online options
Most DBU graduate programs can be completed entirely online, through face-to-face instruction, or in a hybrid format. The choice is yours.

Multiple locations
DBU has three locations around the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex (Dallas, Hurst-Colleyville, and Plano).

Global experience
The best way to understand the global economy is to experience it firsthand. DBU’s faculty frequently lead international practicums around the world.

Stand with boldness
