This paper focuses on students' perception of value, trust and loyalty and how these constructs connect in the context of higher education in Brazil. For this endeavor we conducted a survey among undergraduate business students in Brazil. The findings suggest that trust in faculty and trust in staff positively affects students' trust in management policies and practices; trust in management policies and practices and trust in faculty positively impacts on perceived value; and, perceived value strongly affects student loyalty.
