Checking In: Incubators, New EMBA Format, Ethics Week

Dean's Reflections

Last week I returned to Kansas City to spend a day teaching at the Kauffman Foundation—one of the world’s largest organizations devoted to entrepreneurship. The Foundation asked me to visit as a guest lecturer to teach financial management to a group of international entrepreneurs and faculty. I was excited to get back into the classroom, and look forward to other opportunities like these as we explore expanding entrepreneurship and incubator programs at Loyola.

I’m traveling again now to meet with the AACSB Business School Deans—it’s been a busy week—but I did want to take a moment to pass along an article in the Wall Street Journal. We recently announced the change in format of our Executive MBA program to alternating weekends and the Journal picked up the story in their B-School Bulletin last week. The article does a nice job of explaining our reasoning behind the change. Check it out online when you have a moment.

And finally, be sure to check out our events calendar next week. Ethics Week is a series of speakers and presentations co-sponsored by: the department of Law and Social Responsibility at the Sellinger School; the department of Philosophy in Loyola College; the national business honor society Beta Gamma Sigma; the national Jesuit honor society Alpha Sigma Nu; and the office of mission integration.
