New Course Added to Spring Schedule- MGMT 485 SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

Date: Spring 2018 Quarter 
Time: Mondays, 6-9PM 
Contact Name: Prof. Seth Green at sgreen12@luc.edu

Taught by one of our new Quinlan faculty members, Seth Green, the MGMT 485-Social Enterprise course is designed for graduate students who desire to live out our motto of “doing well and doing good.” This course will equip students with the knowledge and skills to create social value through business strategies. Students will learn how to identify a social issue that has an entrepreneurial solution; how to start and sustain an entrepreneurial social venture; how to obtain funding and generate earned revenue; how to adopt an appropriate legal governance structure and tax status; and how to measure, document, and communicate the enterprise’s social impact. If you are interested in learning more about the course, you can contact Prof. Green.

New Course Added to Spring Schedule- FINC 453 Topics in Advanced Financial Management

Date: Spring 2018 Quarter 
Time: Wednesdays, 6-9PM 
Contact Name: Prof. Abol Jalilvand at ajalilv@luc.edu

While recent economic, technological, and political events have significantly increased the turbulence level in the global business environment, successful firms continue to remain profitable by rapidly adapting their financial and operating strategies to changes in global environment and financial markets. FINC 453 offers an integrated and realistic perspective on managing a firm’s resources, opportunities, and risks. A unique feature of this course is the use of real world cases adapted from the instructor’s professional consulting career with national and global companies. These cases discuss topics such as determining the cost of capital for privately held firms; asset-liability management approaches for public utilities; Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) programs designed for publicly traded and non-profit companies; and mergers and restructuring cases for cable companies. The uses of real world cases sharpen the students’ skills and their prospect to find employment in national and global companies.

The focus on resources addresses the role that financial and operating flexibility (liquidity, leverage, and real options) play in minimizing a firm’s overall cost of capital and maximizing shareholders’ wealth. Lectures on M&A, and restructuring tackle value creation by pursuing a balanced approach in deploying resources in core assets and future growth opportunities. Finally, the instructor will work closely with student groups to evaluate the overall risk management system and strategies of a publicly traded, or non-profit, U.S. or multi-national company.

MGMT 435: Microenterprise Consulting Class

Date: Spring 2018 Quarter
Time: Wednesdays, 6-9PM 
Contact Name: Dr. Stacy Neier Beran at sneier@luc.edu
Contact Phone: 312.915.6581

Consider MGMT 435 Microenterprise Consulting, a unique course offering only available in the Spring Quarter for more hands-on, experiential opportunities while at Quinlan.

Microenterprise Consulting started as a Loyola course 25 years ago. MGMT 435 enables students to take the role of a consultant team that develops the dream of an entrepreneur from an economically-distressed community in Chicago to a full business plan. We have many examples of clients from this class bettering themselves, their families, and their communities by launching their businesses based on the business plan they receive. Thus, students use their knowledge and skills to serve others and make a real-world impact. Throughout the course, students have the opportunity to network with Chicago-area consultants, business hubs/incubators, and other organizations that support microenterprise and microfinance loans.

Enrollment in the course requires an application and a 30 minute, one-one-on interview with the instructor, and to receive an application and schedule an interview.
