Loyola Marymount University’s nationally- ranked and accredited graduate business programs have a lot to offer: academically challenging coursework, flexible schedules for working professionals, intimate classroom setting, personalized attention, global study opportunities and an active alumni network.
Our 142-acre bluff-top campus has expansive views of the Pacific Ocean and is among the nation’s most beautiful and green campuses. LMU is situated in Playa Vista near major entertainment companies, financial services leaders, top advertising agencies, and is just minutes from Silicon Beach – a thriving coastal community of tech innovation and startup activity.
Focused on developing principled business leaders, the MBA Program is designed for individuals with at least two years of professional or internship experience. Classes are held in the evenings to accommodate working professionals. Students are able to complete their MBA degree in as little as 20 months or up to 36 months, depending on a student’s need. The first year is structured as a cohort (core coursework) and the second year offers more flexibility (electives and courses based on area of emphasis). Students begin the program with an orientation weekend that prepares MBA candidates for successful completion of the program, including team building, a self-assessment, a case analysis, and an introduction to the core curriculum. Students choose between two unique international programs as their required global study component. One takes place in the heart of the European Union in Bonn, Germany while the other tours a specific region of the world to conduct research on a specific business topic. Professional skills development, exclusive employer roundtables, career advice and alumni mentors are just some of the offerings provided by the MBA Career Services Office. The experienced staff help MBA students strengthen their career paths, transition into new industries or functions, and assess where skills can be improved to achieve career goals. The MBA Student Association and MBA Alumni Association provide a variety of valuable professional development and networking opportunities. Our focus is on providing students not just with an MBA degree, but with a complete learning experience that will elevate their careers, personal growth and increase their marketability in the workforce.
EXECUTIVE MBA PROGRAM:
The LMU Executive MBA Program ranks among the top 15 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report and is one of Southern California’s premier, most respected EMBA programs. Designed for mid-career executives with a bachelor’s degree and at least eight years of professional, managerial or entrepreneurial experience, our 20-month program provides students with the skills, talents and confidence to develop and lead high-performance teams. The LMU Executive MBA addresses management and leadership within a broad spectrum of organizations and teaches students how to understand core business principles, develop leadership intelligence, apply knowledge and learn to execute. Many graduates of the LMU Executive MBA Program advance to C-level positions within their companies. Saturday-only classes, small class sizes, a collaborative learning environment, personalized attention, an active alumni network, a focus on ethics and leadership, and an international study component set LMU apart from other Executive MBA programs. Our unique OnBoarding Program helps students prepare for a return to academia so they’ll be ready to start classes with confidence. The Executive MBA program includes an initial Leadership Retreat, a one-week domestic trip to Sacramento and Silicon Valley to study innovation and entrepreneurship, and a two-week journey overseas to one or more major business centers to meet with business executives and gather findings for final research projects.
