The HTC Department of Business aims to advance the business discipline to the degree-seeking student, through excellence in education, through knowledge creation, and through the fostering of Torah and ethical values alongside the traditional Business curriculum. You will gain the essential skills necessary to work and lead within the business arena and workforce. A range of experiences are inherent in the coursework, helping you hone your skills and find your place in this dynamic space.

HTC’s faculty will mentor and foster your business networks, identify meaningful internship opportunities, and prepare interested students to matriculate to HTC's MBA pathway program with the Quinlan School of Business at Loyola University Chicago. This streamlined program will enable qualified HTC students to complete their accelerated BA at HTC and apply to Quinlan's one year MBA program with preferred admission and GMAT/GRE waivers. In addition, Quinlan will accept two HTC courses as fulfillment of two elective courses in the MBA program.
