Center for Financial and Policy Studies

The Center for Financial and Policy Studies is housed in the Quinlan School of Business' Finance Department. The Center's objectives are four-fold:

  • To bring nationally recognized experts in banking and financial services from the academic, practitioner and policy-making communities to the Loyola campus to interact with students and faculty and to sponsor symposiums for faculty, students, the banking community, and the general public. 
  • To improve the quality of courses on banking and financial services in the Loyola undergraduate business and MBA curricula.
  • To promote research in banking and financial services by the Loyola faculty and disseminate results through a working papers series.
  • To provide a mechanism for fostering interaction between students, faculty, and the Illinois banking community.

The center sponsors conferences on important current issues in financial institutions and markets and provides financial and other support for faculty research. The center's director is Professor George G. Kaufman.
