Loyola’s rigorous curriculum and focus on real-world business problems demanded new avenues of thought, enhanced my natural inclinations, and transformed me into an adaptable leader.
I come from a technical background, and I have the management experience, but the Loyola MBA provided a way to blend the two.
All the classes I took, all the professors I learned from and all the fellow colleagues I worked with enriched my education and left me with a piece of knowledge I didn’t have before.
