  • Program Emerging Leaders MBA

Avnish Bassant grew up in Mauritius, a small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, where he studied International Business Management. He’d always planned to pursue his MBA and felt Loyola’s Emerging Leader MBA was the right fit. Avnish worked at a multinational company called Diadeis for seven years, where he gained experience in Web development, IT, and graphic design. “I'm ambitious by nature, and I wanted to climb even further up the ladder. I felt that the ELMBA program was ideal to help me progress in my career,” he says. Avnish is on track to graduate in August 2018, after which he hopes to apply his experience studying real-life business situations and developing leadership skills to his field. At Loyola, Avnish also serves as the graduate assistant for student development and marketing in Loyola's department of recreational sports, where he manages the department’s website and all social media. “It is a fantastic opportunity for me to be able to be at a workplace in the United States and learn a lot from its corporate culture,” he says.

See all Students

I am so happy to be at Loyola. As an international student, it has been a challenging experience to come to a new country, but the people at Loyola are so nice and friendly that they make everything easy for you.
