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.

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.

"Through our partnership, the Gupta College of Business will support Kroger employees committed to their pursuit of higher education."
