Our Students and Graduates
I’d encourage new students to really connect with the professors in the program, as I did. They have useful resources and rich experience they can share, plus great contacts to help you get your foot in the door.
The M.S. in Global Strategic Communication program has helped me strategically approach communication challenges through knowledge sharing and strategic thinking. The global aspect of the program truly comes alive through the diversity of students and the study abroad programs. These combined with Loyola University Chicago's values of social justice will help me, as an aspirant strategist planner, to develop brands and campaigns that are successful for the businesses and also helpful to communities across the world.
The M.S. in Global Strategic Communication program is totally worth it – the people you meet, the connections you make, the lessons you learn. You gain a lot of skills that you’ll use right away on the job.
As an international student, I decided on the M.S. in Global Strategic Communication program because of its global component. I’ve had the opportunity to apply theory to practical projects and to meet professionals with incredible backgrounds and learn from their experience. Having this degree will allow me to be more competitive in my professional field.
One the highlights of the M.S. in Global Strategic Communication program was studying and traveling for two weeks in China. It took me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to see how people live, work and communicate in a very different culture.
This was the perfect graduate program for me and I’d recommend it to anyone. I took courses that really challenged me. In my analytics course, I learned how to sift through data to find actionable business insights. And in the crisis communication course, I developed a communication plan and materials to help a fictional company prepare for and successfully manage a demanding crisis.
