In addition to the traditional, part-time MBA program, there are 2 dual degree programs that the LMU MBA Program participates in. For accomplished business professionals, we offer a separate Executive MBA program.

JD/MBA Program

The JD/MBA Program is designed for the student who wants to pursue studies in both law and business administration. Graduates of this program will receive their Juris Doctor degree from Loyola Law School and their Master of Business Administration from Loyola Marymount University in 4 years.

This distinguished program requires a full-time commitment and superior capability to handle the academic rigors of 2 equally intensive graduate programs. Applicants must apply and be accepted into both programs separately; applications for the JD/MBA Program open to current Loyola Law School students immediately after completing their first year. JD/MBA applicants do not have to submit GMAT/GRE scores.

For more information, please visit Loyola Law School.

Engineering/MBA Dual Graduate Degree

This dual degree program is for students who want to gain or sharpen their business knowledge and skills while pursuing a career in engineering. Students have access to the strengths and curriculum of both programs, preparing engineering professionals for leadership positions in high technology companies. Graduates of this program will receive their Master of Business Administration and engineering M.S. or M.S.E.

Engineering master's degrees that qualify for this program are:

  • Systems Engineering

Applicants for the Engineering/MBA Dual Degree program will submit the standard application for their chosen engineering program of study. After receiving acceptance and completing the first year of their engineering degree, students are granted admission to the dual degree program and may begin enrolling in MBA courses provided they are in good academic standing (minimum GPA 3.0) and receive approval from their respective program director.
