Headshot of Patrick Bittorf, EMBA alum"As a professional seeking to deepen my skill-set, broaden my network, and diversify my experience, there was only one Executive MBA program in Chicago that was the right fit for me. The Quinlan EMBA experience is world-class with an intimate cohort size, accessible professors, and a great community of alums doing business blocks away in the Loop. From the intentionality of courses being taught through the Ignatian pedagogy to doing service while on our international immersion trip, Quinlan stays true to its Jesuit tradition that calls its students to take a broad view of our impact as leaders. With a competitive tuition cost, I was able to make an investment not only in my career, but in myself."

Geared towards leadership and growth, Quinlan's EMBA program balances management strategy with the ever-important human element, and encourages its students to grow both professionally and personally."

Headshot of Roger Craine, EMBA alum"After almost 20 years in media and advertising, I decided to take on a career change while in the middle of my EMBA program. A new career in Data Analytics would not have been possible without the influence I had from the Quinlan community.

Quinlan’s curriculum focus on Ethics, Values-Based Leadership and Sustainability, all which in turn produce alumni with great professional growth. The classes at Quinlan demonstrate a genuine commitment to educating students through collaborative methods that drive today’s organizations. Quinlan’s instructors wield a powerful combination of top-tier business professionals and influential thought-leaders who help unlock curiosity and confidence among their students.

Graduates of the Quinlan EMBA program have the potential to step confidently and unapologetically into a board room anywhere in the world."
