The University of Dallas announced a partnership between the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business and health care provider CHRISTUS Health. The agreement will make CHRISTUS Health associates eligible for tuition benefits while allowing the college to further its mission of preparing students in a wide variety of management specialties and to serve a range of industries.
“We are very pleased to establish this corporate partnership with CHRISTUS Health,” said Dean Brett J. L. Landry. “For decades, we’ve prepared principled and moral leaders through experiential and practical business education. This partnership enables us to continue that long tradition with one of the nation’s largest Catholic health systems.”
The partnership will make all CHRISTUS Health associates, in addition to their spouses and dependents, eligible for tuition benefits with the University of Dallas. The benefits may be applied toward master’s degrees offered by the college, continuing education via the university’s Center for Professional Development and undergraduate degrees.
“Our graduate business programs have empowered thousands of working professionals to lead their organizations forward,” said Director of Business Development Doug Milbauer. “We hope to engage more Dallas/Fort Worth corporations to create partnerships that are not only mutually beneficial but that will enrich and elevate the lives and experiences of both their employees and our students.”
