Saint Louis University and Logan University Partner to Expand Student Learning Opportunities


(ST. LOUIS – April 28, 2016) – Saint Louis University (SLU) and Logan University have entered into a unique agreement that will allow Logan students to take courses toward earning a SLU business certificate or degree while earning their Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree.

The articulation and matriculation agreement is the first of its kind, giving DC students enrolled at Logan the advantage of gaining essential practice management skills from one of the most highly ranked business programs in the country.

“We are fortunate to have cultivated a relationship with Saint Louis University, a well respected institution in both higher education and the business community,” said Logan President Clay McDonald, DC, MBA, JD. “The fact that we are able to offer quality continuing education options that further enhance the professional and management skills of our DC students is just another benefit we bring to the ultimate end user: the patients.”

Four foundation courses (Accounting for Managers; Applied Business Statistics; Economics for Managers; and Operations Management) have been jointly developed by SLU and Logan faculty and satisfy both Logan degree requirements as well as SLU foundation requirements for earning a graduate business certificate or degree programs, such as a Masters of Business Administration degree (MBA).

Logan students may complete additional coursework to earn a SLU graduate business certificate or degree programs while enrolled at Logan or within five years of earning their DC degree.

“Through our partnership with Logan University, we are able to offer additional scheduling flexibility to our MBA students who live and work in the growing west St. Louis and St. Charles county area,” said Mark Higgins, dean of the John Cook School of Business. “Additionally we are eager to offer our courses to Logan University students who are interested in pursuing additional business education.”

The articulation agreement stems from a partnership that began between the two universities in fall 2014. SLU’s John Cook School of Business started offering evening MBA courses taught by its faculty at the Logan University campus, offering both convenience and flexibility to individuals living in and around west St. Louis County.
