The Saint Louis University College of Education and Public Service and the John Cook School of Business jointly administer a MA(Ed)/MBA dual degree, full-time program.

Education Meets Business

Graduates of SLU’s dual MA(Ed) /MBA program earn both a Master of Arts in Education Administration and a Master of Business Administration. The 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 understanding important for students considering careers as administrators in educational institutions.

This program includes a study abroad component where students will study foreign-based business cases, visit local businesses, and attend guest lectures. Scheduled between the fall and spring semesters, this ten-day trip provides students with the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on international business experience.
