- Priority Deadline: Feb. 25, 2013
- Final Deadline: July 15, 2013
- International Final Deadline: May 1
The priority deadline ensures first consideration for the limited scholarship opportunities available and for admission to the cohort. Those who apply by the priority deadline will receive an admission decision by April 1. Applications will be reviewed thereafter with rolling admission through July 15.
Students are offered admission based upon the consideration of two major areas: quantitative criteria consisting of prior academic achievement and performance on the GMAT, and qualitative data which includes demonstration of leadership potential and/or management experience, a written personal statement, and two references. In evaluating applicants, the committee considers many aspects of performance including each portion of the GMAT, undergraduate performance and progression, extracurricular involvement and community engagement, certifications and awards, references, and other evidence of the applicant’s capacity to successfully pursue a fast-paced, accelerated graduate business program. The competitive candidate must have demonstrated academic success supported by a strong GMAT score (550 or above). Applications will be reviewed, and those applicants under consideration will be invited to interview via Skype
The program is cohort based. Students from all academic backgrounds are welcome to apply. Applicants whose academic background is not business may be admitted with the condition of completing a three-week, noncredit boot camp which emphasizes quantitative skill development in the areas of macroeconomics, accounting, market analysis, finance, and quantitative modeling. This program is priced separately from the ELMBA tuition.
To apply, applicants must complete the online application and mail or e-mail all required documents to:
Office of Graduate Admission
Loyola University Maryland
2034 Greenspring Drive
Timonium, MD 21093
