Graduates of the dual-degree program at Saint Louis University earn both a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and a Master of Business Administration (M.A./MBA). The program provides an awareness of the functional relationships between the educational system, business and administrative organizations. The increasing complexity of both educational organizations and nonprofit institutions makes understanding business concepts important for students considering careers as administrators in educational institutions.
This program includes a study abroad component in which students study foreign-based business cases, visit local businesses and attend guest lectures. Scheduled between the fall and spring semesters, this seven-day trip provides students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on international business experience.
