In addition to completing the requirements for the BBA, students must complete requirements for the MBA degree. Loyola's standalone MBA requires 18 courses plus an undergraduate internship. In the five-year combined degree program—because four MBA courses (plus the quantitative methods prerequisite) may be waived with a B or better in selected undergraduate courses—the MBA portion of the combined degree may only require 14 courses. Additionally, a quantitative methods component may be required may be required for those students who have not taken the equivalent of Calculus I and earned a grade of B or higher.
In addition to earning five course waivers, qualified students may substitute up to three advanced courses for MBA core courses. The breakdown of required and elective courses within the 14 courses varies based on course waivers and advanced course standing. A Quinlan School of Business graduate program academic advisor will approve course waivers and substitutions upon admission to the MBA program.
