Walgreens Selects Webster University as Education Provider
Date:4/3/2013

ST. LOUIS, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Walgreens has selected Webster University as a preferred education provider within "Walgreens University," a new training and development initiative for Walgreens employees and affiliated providers. The Walgreens initiative is designed to lead its industry in classroom and online programming that engages, educates and develops Walgreens employees for rewarding long-term careers.

According to Benjamin Akande , dean of the Walker School of Business & Technology and leader of the Office of Corporate Partnerships, the agreement provides tuition discounts and other incentives for Walgreens employees to pursue their educational aspirations at Webster.

"Walgreens has a history of innovation and this initiative is indicative of how Walgreens adapts and grows as a company. They know that by developing their employees with higher education opportunities, they are helping to ensure a sustainable future for the company and the communities they serve," Akande said. "Our Walgreens agreement is an important one. It will result in Webster University being a Walgreens' preferred provider, gaining exposure to more than 8,500 Walgreens locations in the United States and approximately 240,000 Walgreens employees."

Don Huonker , Walgreens senior vice president, global projects, said, "After getting an undergraduate degree in pharmacy in 1984, I decided more than 10 years after graduation to go back to school to study business. Webster gave me that opportunity and the MBA I earned there has helped me tremendously. It is wonderful to now see my teammates at Walgreens get the same opportunity I had to get a great education from Webster University."

Qualified Walgreens employees will be able to take Webster classes at any of Webster's locations around the world and online.

With the opening of Walgreens University, the company said it is doubling its annual investment in employee education and development, and plans to double the number of learning opportunities for employees.

With its home campus in St. Louis, Webster University (www.webster.edu) is the only Tier 1, private, non-profit U.S.-based university providing a network of international residential campuses and a robust online learning program. Founded in 1915, Webster University's campus network today includes metropolitan, military and corporate locations around the world, as well as traditional residential campuses in Asia, Europe and North America. The university is committed to delivering high-quality learning experiences that transform students for global citizenship and individual excellence.
