The Quinlan School of Business Graduate Programs staff and faculty are committed to providing services and support for international students from all countries around the globe. We welcome students from all nationalities, and celebrate the diversity of our graduate student community.
For new students admitted to one of our graduate business programs for the Fall quarter in August, we have an early-start program designed to help you adjust to life in the United States.
During the first week of August, we have a cultural expert who teaches our international students how to be successful in meeting new people from other countries and how to make good first impressions.
Through the second and third weeks of August, instructors will teach you what to expect in the US classroom that might be different from what you have experienced in your home country. Before your regular graded classes begin, you will have the opportunity to practice the types of learning activities that will be expected of you during your time here at Quinlan.
Current international students will also be here to welcome you to Chicago and help answer all your questions, show you around, and introduce you to others.
Once you have accepted your admission to Loyola University Chicago's Quinlan School of Business, be sure to register for our early-start program!
U.S. Culture Adaptation and Academic Success Skills Seminar for International Students
Our Quinlan Graduate International Club is a student organization dedicated to promoting cultural awareness, companionship, and fostering leadership skills in a business oriented environment. Active members of this club seek to learn about new cultures, network, and make new friends around the world.
Quinlan Graduate Student Ambassadors
With the purpose of welcoming new international students to Quinlan School of Business graduate programs, the Graduate Student Ambassadors are current students who assist new international students as they transition to Chicago and Loyola University Chicago. Typical assistance includes providing information on how to find a place to live, transportation around the city, choosing graduate business courses, etc. Along the way, students make friends and build professional networks.
Any current students - international or domestic - who are interested in volunteering to serve as an ambassador should contact the graduate programs office at quinlangrad@LUC.edu or 312-915-6124.
