GEORGE G. KAUFMAN
CENTER FOR FINANCIAL AND POLICY STUDIES
LOYOLA UNIVERSITY CHICAGO
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 present symposiums for faculty, students, the bank ing community and the general public
To improve the quality of courses on banking and financial services in the Loyola undergraduate business and MBA curriculums
To promote research in banking and financial services by Loyola faculty and disseminate results through a working paper series To provide a mechanism for fostering interaction between students, faculty, and the Illinois banking community.
The Center’s research and educational focus will be on the Illinois financial community. This reflects the fact that some 70% of Loyola’s graduates remain in the Chicago metropolitan area and many more remain in Illinois. This distinguishes Loyola’s Center from banking centers at other universities, which tend to be national in scope and whose students do not remain in the Chicago area. Loyola’s Center will also focus on both public and private policy issues in banking and be responsive to the needs of the financial community.
