Career Development

Championing everyone’s right to be happy and healthy begins with each of our 240,000 team members. And we know that inspired, passionate and knowledgeable team members can grow their careers while serving our customers. So, we’re constantly investing in better tools and programs to help team members grow their talents, perform to their potential, and succeed in reaching their career goals. Many of those resources are found through our awarding-winning Walgreens University!

Founded in 2013 Walgreens University offers hundreds of training, leadership development and career advancement programs to team members across the company. Walgreens University offers these programs online, at regional campuses across the United States and at its state-of-the-art learning center in Deerfield, IL.

Welcome to Walgreens University

Walgreens University was built to help provide educational opportunities for all of our team members to grow their careers and improve themselves. Today, Walgreens University delivers hundreds of courses that are developed both internally and through other educational institutions.

Because we know that advancing their education is important to many of our team members, many of our programs offer participants the opportunity to gain college credit. We’ve also established unique partnerships with universities around the country, including:

  • DePaul University, which offers an onsite MBA program in Deerfield
  • DeVry University & Chamberlain College of Nursing
  • Lake Forest Graduate School of Management
  • Loyola University Chicago
  • University of Maryland University College (UMUC)
  • University of Phoenix
  • Webster University

Through these partnerships, Walgreens employees (and in some cases immediate family members!) may be eligible for tuition savings of 10% — 40%.

Using the available resources through Walgreens University is a great way to help further develop your skills and capabilities – whether you’re interested learning more about your current role, gaining experience in a new area or moving up within Walgreens.
