The new partnership aims to further the Gupta College of Business’ mission to prepare students in a wide variety of management specialties, serving a range of industries.

“Kroger is recognized for building strong local relationships with their customers through above-and-beyond quality service and retail selections – all at a great value,” said Gupta College of Business Dean Brett J. L. Landry. “Likewise, this partnership will bring the university closer to the surrounding community, while granting Kroger employees access to a world-class business education."

Through this partnership, all Kroger employees (including their dependents) will be eligible for special tuition benefits when they enroll at the University of Dallas. Benefits can be applied to undergraduate, graduate and continuing education programs in the Gupta College of Business’ Center for Executive Education.

“Education is a vital piece of our community,” said Kroger’s Dallas Division Human Resource Manager Jerry Vincent. “Kroger is excited to partner with the University of Dallas to provide this educational and career growth opportunity to our employees.”

Kroger joins other university partners, including Michaels, Holmes Murphy and CHRISTUS Health.

"We respect and admire Kroger for their leadership in the retail industry and in our community," said University of Dallas Director of Corporate Relations and Partnerships Halley Netsch. "Through our partnership, the Gupta College of Business will support Kroger employees committed to their pursuit of higher education."
