Student Life

Designed to “keep your attention,” “classes are interactive and fun” at Loyola, where “professors expect your best and highest quality work, but go above and beyond to pro­vide the support you need in order to succeed. Coming to class is like meeting with friends and family every night.” Students tell us that “life at school is stressful” but worth the hard work. “I do feel like I am learning more then I ever have,” one writes. Loyola classes meet once a week on weekday evenings. While most students are part-timers with full-time jobs, “there are [also] many full-time students that have part-time jobs. Everybody knows everyone. You have many of the same classes with the same peo­ple.” “Significant effort has been made recently to improve the cohesiveness among stu­dents” at Loyola, with “MBA functions almost every week to bring the students closer together.” One student reports, “The MBA program does a good job of organizing social events within as well as outside of the school.”Loyola is located in the fashionable uptown section of New Orleans, just down the road from Tulane University. The area is known for its fine restaurants and upscale shopping. The city’s Central Business District, Garden District, and French Quarter are all easily accessible from campus via the city’s picturesque streetcar line.Most MBAs at Loyola “are just out of [their] four-year degree [programs], but there are some that have been in the workforce for a while.” It’s not just locals in attendance here. One student told us he was “very surprised to discover how many students are from every part of the country and so many different backgrounds.” Across the board, stu­dents tend to be “very friendly and willing to help each other out. The MBA association facilitates this atmosphere by scheduling meet and greets and other social events throughout the semester.”

Career

Loyola maintains a Career Development Center to serve all undergraduate and graduate students of the university. Services include self-assessment instruments, career counsel­ing, internship and job placement services, and guidance in resume writing, interviewing, job search, and salary negotiation skills. The office organizes on-campus recruiting events. One student “is not sure how much other students utilize” the CDC, but she does use the office’s service and finds it “extremely helpful, especially because I recently moved to the area.” The MBA Association also contributes by organizing networking events.In recent years, Loyola MBAs have been placed with Chevron, Cox Communications, Deloitte, Entergy, Ernst & Young, Harrah’s Entertainment, JPMorgan, Northwestern Mutual, the Ochsner Health System, Shell, Prudential Financial, and the Target Corporation.

Students Say

Loyola’s “small, flexible MBA program” “really caters to each and every student,” a fact appreciated by the predominantly part-time student body in the College of Business’ graduate programs. MBAs here also love the “Jesuit tradition,” which encourages “involvement in the New Orleans community.” “I appreciate being at a place that not only educates my mind, but gives me social awareness as well,” one student writes.Loyola offers a general MBA as well as a combined MBA/JD and a combined MBA/MPS. The school does not offer concentrations, but it does offer “strands,” sets of pre-selected electives in a particular discipline that function a lot like concentrations. Students may pursue a strand in finance, leadership, marketing, or supply chains, or they may use their electives to pursue other interests, including forensic accounting, international business, entrepreneurship, negotiations, or sustainability. The MBA culmi­nates in a capstone course called Total Global Strategy, which emphasizes case study and integrative analysis.Loyola professors “are very involved with the students. The classes are small and the fac­ulty care about the students’ well being and learning.” One student writes, “I was shocked to learn how easily accessible my professors were. They really are interested in your edu­cation and your life and they want you to succeed! In fact, they will put in extra hours to make sure you do just that. The business school here is more like a family, which makes it that much easier to learn.” Administrators are “excellent.” One student reports, “There are a few classes the administration is trying to reorganize because of complaints from last semester. I think this is a good thing that the administration is listening to the students.” Indeed, the administration seems intent on exploring all opportunities to improve the pro­gram. “The quality and experience of the new students has improved each year as admis­sion standards have become tougher,” MBAs here report approvingly.

Academic

Loyola's MBA program is an exceptionally flexible program. Students can choose to study part or full time; some students with business undergraduate degrees are able to finish in one calendar year. Students who have heavy outside obligations may want to take only three or four courses a year. You decide how quickly you want to complete the program.

Loyola's MBA Program is composed of 51 credit hours. However, students with an undergraduate degree from an AACSB-accredited business school may waive up to 15 credit hours of the foundation level classes.

This program is ideal for business undergraduates and working professionals, but also works very well for students with non-business degrees. Whether full time or part time, by attending evening classes, students have the opportunity to build their resumes during the day either through internships or participating in various organizations.

There are three key elements of the program: business ethics, leadership, and supply chain management, all taught with a global perspective. The average class size is 14 students, ensuring an interesting, interactive classroom experience.
