The Executive MBA (EMBA) admission committee selects students on the basis of leadership experience and potential, relevant work experience, and academic achievements. The committee also considers factors including professional accomplishments, community service, and extra-curricular activities.
June 1* (Priority Deadline); August 15 (Final Deadline)
At the discretion of the department, applications will continue to be accepted and reviewed after the application deadline on a space-available basis.
The EMBA program is not available for students who require an F-1 Student Visa. International applicants with alternative visa statuses may be eligible.
The EMBA program is for seasoned managers and experienced leaders. Successful applicants will have demonstrated a proven track record of relevant leadership and work experience; typically at least 6 years of increasing management experience. Since Loyola follows a holistic admission process in selecting students for its EMBA program, the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is not required of candidates, provided they meet one or more of the following important criteria used to measure an individual's potential for success in the rigorous relevant MBA learning environment:
- Evidence of exposure and success in areas of quantitative study during one's undergraduate and, if applicable, graduate coursework or in one's professional career;
- Evidence of business and/or financial acumen through one's prior career positions, current work, leadership roles and responsibilities, and industry experience;
- Evidence of appropriate written and verbal communication skills following a review of one's admission materials, written personal statement, and one's interview with the assistant dean or assistant director of EMBA programs.
- Online application form; Non-refundable fee of $60
- Essay/personal statement outlining your interest and goals in pursuing a graduate program
- Official transcripts from all postsecondary colleges or universities attended sent directly to Loyola from institution(s). This includes transcripts from part-time study, study abroad, coursework taken in high school, and from institutions that have awarded the applicant a bachelor's master's, or doctoral degree or an advanced certificate. Applicants who hold degrees or have earned credits from non-U.S. institutions (not study abroad programs) must have a course-by course evaluation and translation done by a Loyola recognized evaluation services agency. Loyola recommends World Education Services (www.wes.org).
