Open to all Quinlan MBA and MS students

Loyola’s study abroad programs are on hold due to COVID-19. The trips will resume when it is safe to do so.

Continue to sharpen your leadership skills through an intensive study abroad experience at Quinlan. Our study abroad courses will help you develop the global, cross-cultural perspective needed by today’s leaders. You’ll also develop a strong network of classmates and business professionals.

Study abroad courses are open to both part-time and full-time business students for full academic credit. Classes are taught by our top professors and are offered in a variety of disciplines.

Where we go

Each year Quinlan creates unique global immersions. Our classes vary each year, but our Comparative Consumer Behavior course in South East Asia has been offered almost continuously for a decade! 

During study abroad courses, Quinlan students have:

  • Developed a continuity infrastructure plan for dispersing resources after Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico
  • Gained an understanding of how companies help create sustainable farming practices at cocoa, coffee, and agave plantations
  • Analyzed and presented findings for a global branding case study for an international cosmetic company in Spain
  • Collaborated with human resource professionals in Spain to create global HR strategies, programs, and policies

They have also visited a tranquil Wat (temple) in bustling Bangkok, explored China’s Great Wall, wondered at the ancient temples in Greece, and relaxed at a beautiful vineyard in Chile.

How it works

Lectures and preparation include class time before and after the excursion. While studying abroad, students often meet with local companies, NGOs, government officials, and sometimes local service agencies. Group tours of national landmarks and local world heritage sites are often included. Ample time is given for personal exploration.

Study abroad courses typically are completed in 10 to 12 days, allowing those that work full time to participate. The courses are mostly held during winter, spring, and summer quarters. Each course is 3 credits and can be used as an elective credit in any degree program.

Costs include (but not limited to):

  • Course tuition
  • Course fee (often includes hotel, ground transportation, site visits, some meals)
  • Airfare and personal expenses / spending money
