The purpose of this degree is to develop God-honoring leaders who will exhibit a Christ-centered focus in their professional and personal lives by equipping them with the practical skills needed to manage today’s information systems, to be successful in a new or existing business, and/or oversee the business needs of a Christian ministry.

IT management and traditional management have similarities, such as recruiting, controlling, and budgeting. Yet, IT has grown to become such an integral part of organizations today touching every facet of 21st century businesses. PCC’s MBA with an IT Management specialization will equip you to manage a business along with the technological resources needed to ensure your business’ success.

An applicant is not required to have majored in business on the undergraduate level. However, certain core competencies from undergraduate courses must be demonstrated (with at least a “C-”) to register for some required M.B.A. courses. Core competencies that meet requirements are listed below (along with PCC courses).

A student may begin M.B.A. courses prior to meeting all competency requirements.

  • Accounting—Introductory courses (AC 231 and 232)
  • Computer Security—Introductory course (CS 271)
  • Database—Introductory course (BA 330 or CS 303)
  • Finance—Corporate Finance—one year (BA 301 and 302)
  • Marketing—Foundational course (MK 204)
  • Statistics—Upper-level course (BA 322 or MA 326)

Students may satisfy these core competencies while taking M.B.A. courses, but the time to complete the M.B.A. will increase.

All Applicants Must Submit the Following:
