Concordia was founded in 1926 by a group of visionary members of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS).

As an institution affiliated with the LCMS, Concordia strives to incorporate the Christian faith into academic programs, including online degree programs.

CTX alumna Erika Duarte ('19) graduated from one of Concordia's online degree programs. Her favorite thing about CTX was the Christian learning environment.

"I love how Concordia intertwines Christian faith and career preparation," Duarte said. "You keep your beliefs and Christian thoughts, and CTX gives you knowledge to advance in the corporate world."
