Mission Statement

The International Business Development (IBD) Division helps implement Loyola’s strategic plan goal to move to the next level of excellence by strengthening Loyola’s international outreach.

As Loyola’s president, Fr. Ridley, has said, " We are compelled – by our history and our faith -- to seize our destiny and move toward a broader vision to a world in need of values and leadership."

  • To help implement this vision of moving toward this next level, IBD will provide support for development of small and medium sized enterprises around the world. It will provide business education and training (via traditional approaches and distance learning), business plan development, access to capital and markets, brokering of joint ventures, and other business services. IBD services will be provided via small business incubators, business support centers, and technoparks.
