Loyola had what I believed at the time, and
still believe, is the best business program in the region. So when I got out, I knew I
wanted to work in the investment business, but I also knew that I wanted to begin a Master’s
program. So for me, it was an obvious choice to select the MSF program because it allowed
me to pursue more courses in that field of, of investing. That added coursework in investing
really helped pique my interest—develop my skill set—that I think helped me a great
deal in taking the next step here at T. Rowe Price.
Having a Master of Science in Finance from Loyola means to me that I was able to complete
a very rigorous academic program that prepared me well for the business, and specifically
investment, arena. So I’ve always had a real passion for the school, and loved my
years going there as an undergrad and graduate student, and I think the program’s gotten
better, the school and the program’s gotten better all along the way. So for me now to
have a role in helping direct the future of that and bettering it for future students,
I feel like it’s a worthy challenge. I highly recommend the program to anyone that’s looking
to get a business degree in this region. Someone considering an MBA program should choose Loyola
because they’ve been doing it a long time, they’ve been doing it well, they’ve proven
they have the academic excellence. They emphasized early the importance of ethics on a—in a
business degree, right, long before it was popular. It helps you become a clear thinker,
a strategic thinker; I think it helps you make responsible decisions, smart decisions.
Loyola graduates are highly sought after, and I think that they would be very well prepared
coming out of graduate school with a Loyola MBA.
The best thing about having a Loyola MBA MSF is the prestige that it brings when someone
hears that that’s where you went to school.
