The Jesuit Transfer Network celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, having served more than 500 MBA students. In 1996, a group of Master of Business Administration degree directors and administrators from several Jesuit universities established the network to accommodate working students who had been relocated to another city.
“In today’s job market, it’s common for MBA students to get transferred halfway through the program,” said Rachelle Katz, associate dean and MBA director at Loyola Marymount University. “The Jesuit Transfer Network was developed to respond to these student’s needs. It allows them to make a move to any program in the network with ease and flexibility.”
The agreement between 24 of the 28 Jesuit universities in the U.S. allows a student to transfer to an MBA school in the network with most, if not all, of their credits. Depending on how far along they are in the program, they will either earn an MBA from their admitting school or their transfer school.
“There are many reasons that I’m glad I picked a Jesuit school and the network is definitely one of them,” said Reema Zuberi, who earned her MBA from Loyola Marymount University in 2009 after transferring from John Carroll University when her husband got a new job in Southern California.
