Dual MA(Ed)/MBA program developing new class of leaders

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.
