In 2013, with the generous support of Dr. Jeanne and Rex Sinquefield, the John Cook School of Business and the College of Education and Public Service at Saint Louis University announced a partnership to rethink business education and to develop a new class of creative-minded, business savvy leaders.
Graduates of SLU’s dual MA(Ed)/MBA program earn both a Master of Arts in Education Administration and a Master’s of Business Administration, and this two-year, dual-degree program allows students to receive both degrees faster than if they pursued them separately.
The curriculum includes a “study abroad” component, in which students analyze foreign-based business cases; attend guest lectures; and between the fall and spring semesters, take an international trip and study abroad for two weeks to gain valuable hands-on international business experience.
The dual MA(Ed)/MBA program provides an awareness of the functional relationships between the educational system and business and administrative organizations. The increasing complexity of both educational organizations and non-profit institutions makes such understanding important for students considering careers as administrators in educational institutions.
