Whether you're looking to further your education, considering a job change or interested in career advancement, our program can help you realize your full potential with our small classes, outstanding faculty and strong academic reputation. Focused on developing business leaders, our small class sizes allow personalized attention and close interaction with faculty.

Embracing the Jesuit ideal of "educating the whole person," our curriculum is designed to make you an engaged participant — giving you the ability to tailor your degree to meet your personal needs and professional aspirations. In addition to core business skills, graduate students receive leadership training, develop communication skills and gain practice in case analysis and ethical reasoning.

Grow as a person, not just as a professional. Learn from professors who care about your success as an individual and as a leader. Gain new connections that turn into lifelong friendships. Students earn more than an MBA degree at LMU; they gain a valuable and intimate experience that plays a large role in paving a successful career path.

Ranked 13th in Entrepreneurship, 20th in Marketing and 25th in Management by U.S. News & World Report, the LMU MBA Program is at the forefront of providing students with the best graduate-level career advancement education in the nation.

Program Delivery and Schedule

The MBA program is designed to be completed in 2 years on a part-time basis; admission is offered for fall and spring enrollment. During your first year, you complete the MBA core courses, and during the second year, you focus on your area of emphasis, elective courses and global study. Each student participates in an orientation program, 2 workshops and an international trip.

While approximately 90 percent of LMU MBA students choose to complete the program in 2 years, students requiring more flexibility have the option to extend the program to 3 years by taking a reduced course load each semester.

Classes are offered Monday to Thursday starting at 6:30 p.m. to provide students with the ability to balance work and school. MBA core classes consist of 20–30 students while elective/emphasis courses contain 8–10 students.
