Loyola launches fully online MBA option
Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management will add a fully online option to its Professional’s MBA, a part-time, self-paced MBA program designed for working professionals. Courses are designed and facilitated by Loyola faculty in accelerated eight-week sessions, with an approach to online learning that is highlighted by small class size and a personalized student experience.
“We’ve built our new online classes from the ground up, designing them alongside our faculty who are dedicated to the success of every student and to providing engaging, meaningful experiences,” said Kathleen Getz, Ph.D., dean of the Sellinger School. “The online classes are an extension of Sellinger’s commitment to powerful, ethical business education, presenting business as a crucial force for good in the world.”
In addition to the new fully online path, launching in the fall of 2020, MBA students will have expanded course options where they can blend traditional in-person, hybrid, and online courses to create a personalized plan. Loyola offers in-person MBA classes on campuses in Columbia and Timonium and select courses in downtown Baltimore.
“The new online courses increase the flexibility of our Professional’s MBA program, as students can mix and match different class formats to fit their schedules,” said Bobby Waldrup, Ph.D., associate dean and professor of accounting. “The expanded options meet the needs of students interested in a Loyola MBA but require additional flexibility, such as business travelers, new parents, or experienced professionals outside our immediate market seeking a career boost.”
In addition, Loyola further streamlined the Professional’s MBA program, now requiring 39 credits with five specializations, all which include online course options. Incoming students can specialize in interdisciplinary business, marketing, management, finance or data analytics, and digital technology. Students typically complete the program in two-to-three years.
