It is a private co-educational religious-affiliated university established in Chicago in 1870 as Saint Ignatius College. It was founded by the the Jesuits and is named after the Jesuit patron, Saint Ignatius of Loyola. It is the largest Jesuit University in the United States.)
Now its Graduate School of Business has established a partnership with the Illinois Bankers Association to offer a new specialized MBA in Strategic Financial Services which will be called MBASFS. This degree is the first specialized MBA of its kind in the United States.
The University has four campuses: three in the greater Chicago area and one in Rome, Italy.
Loyola also serves as the U.S. host university to the Beijing Center for Chinese Studies, which runs the ChinaContact program for MBA students designed for students who want to see at first-hand how the Chinese economic and financial systems operates. It does this with lectures on the Chinese economy and finance in Beijing.
