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 “professional” MBA as well as a “fast-track” MBA designed to be completed within one year. Furthermore, the MBA program offers specialization tracks allowing students to select three elective courses in a specific concentration including: Finance, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, and Operations. The MBA culminates in a Capstone Consulting Project where students are required to conduct research and produce an in-depth report of a company applying all major topics covered in all required courses taken throughout the student’s tenure in the MBA program.

Both programs are comprised of 40 credit hours; 12 (3 credit hour) courses separated by 4 (1 credit hour) immersion weeks that offer more intensive seminars on topics vital to an MBA program such as orientation and launch, venture and start-up entrepreneurship, career development, and ethics and social justice.

Career Overview


Students Say

Loyola maintains a Career Development Center to serve all undergraduate and graduate students of the university. Services include self-assessment instruments, career counsel- ing, 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, Children’s Hospital, Fidelity Homestead Savings Bank, General Electric, Shell Trading, US Department of Treasury, UNITY of Greater New Orleans, John Besh Restaurant Group, Postlethwaite and Netterville.

Campus Life

Students Say

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 than 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 next door to 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 acces- sible 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 associ- ation facilitates this atmosphere by scheduling meet and greets and other social events throughout the semester.”
