As an integral part of the Quinlan School of Business, our mission is to support and help family businesses navigate complex generational transitions, strengthening both their family and business. We believe that a community of family businesses learning together contributes to the sustainability of families, businesses, and society.


To be the premier resource and learning community for multigenerational, mid- to large-sized family businesses.

Why Loyola

At the Family Business Center, we have been supporting families in business since the early 1990’s and continue to share best practices as they evolve. We work with family businesses who have a desire to learn from others and who share our belief that sustaining family businesses contributes to the stability of the economy and communities.

We believe in sharing what works and that peer learning in confidential forums is best. Going it alone might be faster, but going together makes for a deeper, richer, and more transformative experience.
