Why attend

Loyola's strengths go beyond the urban setting and the diverse backgrounds of its professors. As a university with a strong focus on ethics, most professors strive to include such topics in all courses. As a medium-sized business school, Loyola's faculty doors are open to all students who wish to discuss anything from career and volunteer opportunities to ideas for enhancing the student body experience. At Loyola, student organizations are not merely clubs that gather for social events. Student leaders provide students opportunities to gain practical business skills, develop a strong network, and learn about new and innovative ideas.

Curriculum

Loyola University Chicago (LUC) is a Jesuit Institution that offers full-time and part-time programs of study in the Quinlan School of Business Graduate Programs and a range of specializations to meet the needs of both non-working and working students. The school prides itself on its commitment to socially responsible leadership. LUC offers Microenterprise Consulting, a course with 13 years of history that provides MBAs with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in consulting and advising individual entrepreneurial and nonprofit clients starting up or operating businesses in economically disadvantaged Chicago neighborhoods. This course involves working directly with the client and is a unique learning experience. This was recognized by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, Loyola's accrediting association, when it awarded the Microenterprise Consulting course first place in its 2007 Innovation in Business Education competition.
