Loyola University Chicago

Executive and Professional Education Center

Housed in the Loyola Business Leadership Hub


Take your career to the next level.

Our Mini-MBA course equips you with a set of key management skills to help you maximize performance. Our expert faculty cover a wide range of subjects—from marketing to finance to accounting—providing you with a clear understanding of how each function contributes to organizational success.

The Mini-MBA is  designed to help you understand your leadership style. You will gain insights about your motivations, work style, and conflict-management skills by participating in a series of assessment tools.  Following the course, you will have the opportunity to explore your management style through a personalized, one-on-one coaching session with course faculty. Near the end of the program, you will integrate what you’ve learned to create a strategy map specifically tailored to achieve the goals of your business/organization. Participants will receive a Mini-MBA Certificate from Loyola’s Quinlan School of Business upon successful completion of the course.
