The Loyola University GSB Association is an organization developed to enhance each student' s GSB experience while pursuing his or her Masters degree. In a nutshell, the organization was formed for the purpose of creating an avenue (such as social events, community service, speakers, etc) for classmates to get to know each other (outside of the classroom). Did you realize there are over 700 students in the graduate school of business? What an amazing opportunity to expand one's personal network. Through participation with the GSB Association, each student will encounter professional networking prospects, service opportunities within the Chicago community, and social occasions with GSB peers. All GSB Association activities are open to current students, alumni, faculty, and community leaders. The development of this association will embrace Loyola's value-based leadership heritage.
