Admission Requirements

Application Deadline

The Cyber Security Certificate program is not accepting applications for the Spring 2017 term. Please contact the Office of Gradate Business Programs at 410-617-5067 or mba@loyola.edu for questions regarding a current application.

Qualifications

Applicants for admission must possess an undergraduate degree and will be evaluated based upon quantitative criteria consisting of prior academic achievement and professional experience (strong grade point average and quantitative background). Admission to the Cyber Security Certificate program does not guarantee admission to the Professional's MBA which has separate entrance requirements; if an applicant becomes interested in enrolling in the Professional's MBA, they will need to follow the GMAT requirements of that program. The Admissions Committee is the final arbiter and reserves the right to require additional information from the applicant. Applicants will be notified in writing of an admission decision.  

Cyber Security Certificate Admissions Requirements

The following materials should be completed online/uploaded on the application:

  • Online application form; Non-refundable fee of $60 
  • Resume or curriculum vitae
  • Essay/personal statement (the essay prompt can be found on the MyAccount page)

The following test scores should be submitted directly from the test administrator to Loyola (Loyola's institution code is 5370):

  • Official TOEFL or IELTS Score Report. Required if English is not your native language or if you have not completed a degree program taught in English (no more than two years old). 

Applicants should request that the following materials be emailed directly to Loyola at graduate@loyola.edu.  

  • 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, and bachelor's, master's, doctoral degree or advanced certificate credit. 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 NACES-approved evaluation services agency. Loyola recommends the WES:ICAP from World Education Services (www.wes.org).
