8. MGMT 335: Microenterprise Consulting. Students often say they wish they had more hands-on, experiential opportunities while at Quinlan. So, please consider MGMT 335 Microenterprise Consulting, a unique course offering only available in the Spring Semester on Wednesdays from 6:00-9:00pm. Microenterprise Consulting started as a Loyola course 25 years ago. MGMT 335 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. MGMT 335 requires a completed application and a one-on-one 30 minute interview with the instructor, Dr. Stacy Neier Beran. To receive an application, please email Dr. Beran.

Leaning In, Together

Sponsored by the Baumhart Center

October 29 | 6:00-7:30pm | SCHR 9th floor


Ilene Gordon and Bram Bluestein "leaned in" together. Over almost four decades of marriage, they have raised two children, supported two grandchildren, and embraced two high-impact careers. Ilene ultimately served as CEO of a Fortune 500 company and Bram held senior leadership positions at several of the most respected consulting firms in the world. Along the way, Ilene and Bram learned how to navigate their personal and professional journeys, together. Their insights offer essential lessons for individuals thinking about how to balance career, ife, and family; their insights also offer a case study on how we might build greater equity in leadership across all sectors of our economy. Join us for this special conversation with Ilene and Bram.

Breakfast with David Logan

 At Corporate Citizenship we believe that our work with business, large and small, all around the world makes a real positive difference to the environment and society. Our consultancy work, designed to simplify sustainability and transform businesses, draws on the broad range of experience and expertise of our team. At Corporate Citizenship we have extensive experience of brokering corporate partnerships and developing community investment activities for major global corporations. We also founded and manage LBG the globally recognized framework for managing and measuring corporate community investments. We believe our experience here can be used to help organisations become more appealing and effective corporate partners. As individual citizens we all have rights, responsibilities and aspirations. And business is no different.

So what kind of corporate citizen do you want to work for?

It’s a crucial question. Because business has the power to shape the future. To improve the way we live and create growth that benefits everyone. Why? Because a healthy society is in business’s best interest. In a healthy society, businesses and people thrive. Which means responsible business isn’t a choice – it’s a business necessity. We act as critical friends and ask the sometimes difficult questions that challenge our clients to find their place in the world and fulfill their responsibilities and ambitions.

Join us. Ask the critical questions. Learn about creating win-win-wins from a recognized, worldwide expert in the field.

Labre Ministry

The Labre Ministry is a student-led homeless outreach ministry. Labre Ministries began at St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland in 2002. It has since expanded to several universities and high schools in the United States. In 2007, alumni of St. Ignatius High school who were then Loyola students, began Labre Ministry at the WTC.

Students form relationships with the homeless of downtown Chicago, providing both food and friendship. Labre's main focus is solidarity, rather than charity, focusing on the relationships created than on the act of providing food itself. By building relationships, Loyola students choose to stand in solidarity with God’s people and affirm the human dignity of all.

Contact Grace Girardot with questions or for more information.
