Upon acceptance, individuals with a master's degree in business from Loyola or another AACSB-accredited college or university may take courses for which they have the background. Individuals with other master's degrees may request admission through the graduate business programs director. Detailed admission information (application procedures, required documents, deadlines, etc.) can be found under Admission .
Many graduate business alumni use the Master's Plus as a vehicle to prepare for certain professional certifications, such as the Certification of Public Accountancy (CPA), or to stay current with their field, or explore a new one. Master's Plus students may register for any elective course within the PMBA in consultation with the graduate business program director.
Students may take up to five courses under the Master's Plus, as long as they maintain good standing as a graduate student (GPA of 3.000 or better). Additional courses may be taken with permission. The Master's Plus does not lead to a degree.
Graduates from Loyola's MBA, Executive MBA, MBA Fellows Program, or Emerging Leaders MBA may enter the Master's Plus to obtain additional coursework or specializations. After successfully completing an approved three-course sequence through the evening MBA course offerings, a second specialization will be recorded on the student's transcript. Consultation with a program advisor or graduate business program director is required when selecting courses.
