Director's Greeting

Welcome to Cedarville’s online M.B.A. program.  We are excited to provide a top-quality, biblically integrated education. We value you as our student and want you to have a successful educational experience.

When I worked on my M.B.A., over a four-year period, I found juggling multiple priorities my biggest challenge. Persevering and relying on God’s strength, I completed my degree. I enjoyed my course work and interacting with my classmates. Our desire is that even through an online course, you will develop relationships with your fellow students — sharing “war stories” and best practices as well as praying for each other. 

As you anticipate beginning your first M.B.A. course, you will be participating in two free assessments. These assessments have pre- and post-test assessment segments and are used to maintain accreditation for the M.B.A. program. In addition, your responses will help us evaluate course areas to ensure you successfully achieve the learning objectives.

Plan to complete the pre-test segments of your assessments before you begin your first M.B.A. course. The post-test assessment segments will occur during your capstone course as you complete your M.B.A. degree requirements.

Contact me at any time with questions or concerns.

Director's Greeting

Thank you for choosing to be part of the M.Ed. degree program at Cedarville.

In addition to the exceptional faculty who provide your course instruction in an online environment, you also have been assigned a dedicated program advisor, who will help you successfully navigate the requirements of the M.Ed. program.

As an online M.Ed. student, you are involved in a less structured learning environment than you experienced as an undergraduate student.  Online graduate students must be self-motivated and disciplined to successfully complete their courses. 

We suggest that you approach your online courses as you would traditional on-campus courses.  Please carefully review and follow the course syllabus to identify professor expectations, assignment instructions, and project deadlines. 

As a busy professional and graduate student, you have competing priorities and multiple responsibilities. These eight-week M.Ed. courses are designed to provide instruction at a quick pace, and you are strongly encouraged to follow the pace of the course as it was designed.  This will reduce your stress, maximize your learning, and help you avoid grade reductions due to late assignments.

As you progress through your courses, be sure to maintain communication with your course instructors.  In the event of extenuating circumstances, you may be able to arrange for alternative deadlines.

Contact me with any questions or concerns.  We want you to succeed in your studies, your professional development, and your ministry to the students and families you serve.

Advancing the Kingdom,
Stephen S. Gruber, Ed.D.

Dean's Greeting

One of the most exciting and dynamic professions in health care is pharmacy. As the health care needs of our communities have increased in both complexity and cost, the pharmacy profession has assumed a more active role in the direct, clinically focused care of patients and their families. Schools of pharmacy, in turn, have responded with a variety of course changes to accommodate those shifts. Students enrolling in Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) programs are now extensively trained in disease pathologies, patient assessment, patient communication, clinical decision-making, cost-effective and clinically effective therapy management, clinical research methods, and business strategies.

At Cedarville University, we go even further in our approach to taking care of patients. We recognize that serving people is God’s call in our life. In addition to affording students experiences in industry (e.g., research and development of drug products), various high-level practice settings, and unique health care companies, we also provide students with experiences in underserved populations, assist students in finding God’s call within their chosen profession, and challenge students to be innovative in every facet of professional engagement. We desire our graduates to be good stewards of God’s wisdom.

Graduates will be exposed to the myriad unmet needs within the health care system. At Cedarville University, we are preparing you to create strategies to initiate positions, companies, or organizations to meet those needs. Our hope is that you will graduate from our program not just seeking positions, but envisioning and creating the positions that will make a difference in our society.

We are glad that you chose to be part of our unique mission and rewarding profession!
