The Jesuit MBA Network (JEBNET) is an organization of Graduate Business School leaders from Jesuit universities in the United States, Europe, Asia, and South America. These leaders gather twice annually to share ideas, best practices and to explore ways to support the students at their respective institutions. 

Marquette University has been actively involved in this organization and values the collaboration and collegiality that comes from the leaders at these member schools. This organization helps to implement new and innovative initiatives for its graduate students, faculty and staff.

MBA students enrolled at member schools have the unique advantage of being able to transfer to any institution without sacrificing units or time to complete their degree. Along with the transfer benefit, students can also participate in select study abroad programs and networking events.  Alumni from member institutions have also benefited from regional Jesuit networking events and post-MBA programs.
