A full range of custom educational and community-building services
Professional education for family business
With the help of Loyola’s Executive and Professional Education Center, we offer tailored education to meet the needs of family businesses. Classes are taught by Quinlan faculty and focus on building skills and awareness in areas such as finance and accounting, governance, and planning. We also work with family businesses to design custom programs.
Annual check-ins and family meetings
Strategic planning, good governance, and family meetings contribute to successful family businesses. We often collaborate with member families in planning annual family meetings and facilitating learning sessions at shareholder meetings. Referrals to other Center members and professionals are also available.
Members can take advantage of structured or ad-hoc coaching and consulting with the Family Business Center director. Introductions to other members, custom research packages, or counsel are all available.
Blind Board Search
The Center often helps members fill open board seats using a blind board search process. We help create a prospectus, send it out through our channels and channel partners, collect bios and resumes, and forward eligible candidates to the member company. If you are interested in this service, contact Anne Smart.
Need information about a specific topic related to family business? Center members can request materials (hardcopy or digital) from our collection of periodicals, books, audio- and videotapes, reference materials, and monographs.
Connect with Loyola students
Career Services at Loyola's Quinlan School of Business offers a number of services to help family businesses hire students for internships and careers.
