Loyola University Chicago

Loyola Business Leadership Hub

Housed in the Quinlan School of Business



The Center for Risk Management is a globally recognized source of risk management thought development, leadership and continuous learning for personal progress, and for profit and non-profit organizations.  The risk panorama will be at an enterprise level to understand how risk is a lens to assess our environment continually to plan and execute business strategies effectively.


The Center for Risk Management will cultivate partnerships with the Loyola Community, public and private business, and nonprofit organizations from startup onward to bring research and current risk issues together to provide understanding and insights into resiliency planning and execution.

The Center will embrace its commitment to serve in an advisory and mentor capacity in underserved areas to foster economic growth with an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Our approach

  • Create an ecosystem to support among public, private, and non-profit sectors in the risk management space.
  • Engage practitioners, academics, and students to conduct research, share ideas, better practices in the for-profit, not-for-profit, and social enterprise sectors to address a wide range of enterprise risk impacts.
  • Because risk can emanate from anywhere, undertake an interdisciplinary approach to identifying and developing mitigation strategies for risks.
  • Engage partner organizations where collaboration will lead to faster / better outcomes without compromising values or brand.


The Center for Risk Management was founded in 2007 thanks to a generous $1 million gift from the CME Group Foundation.

The Quinlan School of Business has a long history of providing education around futures and options markets. With the support of a grant from the CME Group Foundation, the school offered its first undergraduate course in futures markets in 1972. Since then, thousands of students have taken this course and new courses in risk management have been added.


The Center for Risk Management is housed in the Loyola Business Leadership Hub on Loyola University Chicago's Water Tower Campus, just steps from Chicago's Magnificent Mile.
