The Loyola MBA Experience

Loyola part-time MBA received 2019 Princeton Review Best Business School

Loyola’s University Maryland’s Professional’s MBA is a part-time, self-paced program for working professionals from all academic and industry backgrounds. The Loyola MBA is tailored to meet the needs of our students. The program is flexible, and includes weekday evening courses with on-campus, hybrid, and online course options. Fall, spring, or summer start terms are available.

Our redesigned curriculum allows students to earn their degree in 39 to 42 credits – allowing for faster time to completion and return on your investment.

Students pursuing the MBA with a General Business specialization may complete the program in 39 credits. Students seeking an MBA with one of our other seven specializations can do so in 42 credits. In addition, up to two course waiver exams (3 credits each) can be taken by admitted students. Waiver exams are offered in finance, statistics, and economics.


The Professional’s MBA encourages students to customize the curriculum by aligning their course choices with personal interests and career goals. We currently offer eight specializations in a variety of relevant industry focus areas:


Flexible, part-time option

Students manage their program at their own pace, taking anywhere from 2.5 to 6 years to complete the program. This format has convenient course locations in Columbia and Timonium with face-to-face, online, and hybrid course options for additional flexibility.
