CME Group Foundation
Loyola's Risk Center Backed by the CME Group Foundation
In 2007, The CME Group Foundation awarded the School of Business Administration, now the Quinlan School of Business, a one million dollar grant for four years to support the new Center.
Funding will be used to
- Introduce new and enhance existing courses in financial markets and risk management
- Support research in risk management and futures and options
- Provide scholarships and assistantships for students interested in risk management and exchange traded derivatives
- Offer seminars and workshops on market and financial risk management
With the support of a grant from the CME Group Foundation, Loyola offered its first undergraduate course in futures markets in 1972. Since then, 3,400 students have taken this course and seven new courses in risk management have been added. The CME Group Foundation's generous grant will enable Loyola to reinforce its position as a thought leader in Chicago's business and academic communities.
