The guideline used by the admission committee to give promising applicants the opportunity to undertake graduate work. A careful examination of an applicant's academic and professional qualifications precedes every admission decision. The committee values previous academic achievement, work experience assessed through a resume, and professional references. MBA and MSF candidates may be eligible for admission without submitting a GMAT score report. The following provisions qualify an applicant to request GMAT waiver consideration: Possession of an advanced degree (e.g., master's level or higher), or the combination of an undergraduate Grade point average of 3.25 or higher and at least five years of significant professional work experience, typically post baccalaureate, and a personal interview with a Sellinger School graduate advisor.
Applicants accepted for graduate study will be advised in writing. Individuals will also be informed of any undergraduate courses or prerequisites requiring completion before commencing their academic studies. A program advisor will assist in planning your program of study. Students are responsible for discussing any special needs they may have with their advisor.
In evaluating applicants, the committee considers many aspects of performance including each portion of the GMAT, undergraduate/graduate performance and progression, career progress, references, professional certifications and awards, and other evidence of the applicant's capacity to successfully pursue graduate study in business.
The program focuses on students who have a bachelor's or master's degree in a business discipline; however, students with strong academic and experience credentials from any academic discipline are accepted. The academic records of all accepted students will be evaluated by a program advisor to determine if foundation coursework is necessary before beginning the core (700-level) courses. Foundation coursework includes accounting, finance, economics, and statistics. It is expected that the applicant will have two years of professional work experience.
Applicants to the Professional's MBA program who meet certain provisions can request consideration for admission without submitting a GMAT score. If, upon review by the admission committee, the applicant is considered admissible without a GMAT score, that requirement will be waived. The following provisions qualify an applicant for consideration for the GMAT waiver: possession of an advanced degree with quantitative content (e.g., master's, doctorate, etc.) or an undergraduate GPA of 3.250 or higher, combined with at least five years of significant professional experience (typically post-baccalaureate) and a personal interview with a Loyola University academic advisor. The admission committee reserves the right to require a GMAT score from an applicant even if the basic conditions are met.
