The Emerging Leaders MBA Experience
Loyola University Maryland’s Emerging Leaders MBA (ELMBA) is a full-time, one-year MBA program designed for recent college graduates and early career professionals. Cohorts begin the program once a year in the fall and are comprised of diverse individuals with a wide variety of educational and professional backgrounds. In 2019, the ELMBA program was named as a “Top 50 Fastest" MBA program by MBA Central.
Our immersive, experiential curriculum builds upon your strong functional knowledge and critical thinking skills through a variety of real-world experiences including corporate visits, mentoring, and internships. Each semester brings about the opportunity to participate in “First Friday” site visits, leadership and career development workshops, networking, and team building exercises.
Explore Your World
Students participate in domestic and international field studies in which exploration of emerging markets, new business climates and cultures are experienced firsthand. ELMBA students have traveled internationally to Spain, Chile, China, Peru, and Vietnam. Domestic field study experiences have explored New York City, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and Walt Disney World.
As a student and alumnus of our MBA program, you’ll have access to Loyola’s Career Center, which is dedicated to connecting you with organizations in need of your expertise. Upon graduation, you become a part of our expansive alumni network in Baltimore and around the globe.
