The Center for Asian Business (CAB) was established in 1995 by the late Fr. John P. Daly, S.J. to promote understanding between Asians and Americans through multiple channels, including international business courses, faculty research grants, student scholarships and special lectures and movie screenings.

The CAB, through its endowment, provides research grants and encourages academic researchers to engage in innovative interdisciplinary research involving geopolitical, economic and socio-cultural dynamics of Asian countries through a comparative analysis of institutions, cultural value systems and historical perspectives.

The CAB offers summer study scholarships for undergraduates to promote a deeper understanding of Korea, a main trading partner of the U.S. as well as the state of California, as a basis for better communication and the development of collaborative projects.

Additionally, the CAB holds symposiums, seminars and conferences for public and private organizations, independently or in collaboration with our network of affiliated institutions in Asia and the U.S. It brings together practitioners and high-level executives, visionaries and leaders to encourage networking and partnerships as well as provide short-term training programs in the areas of entertainment and media in the era of technology.

Loyola Marymount University is located in Los Angeles, one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world and the doorway to the Pacific Rim.
