The Loyola MBA Experience

Loyola part-time MBA received 2020 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. Our curriculum is designed for students to earn their degree in 39 credits (13 courses) – allowing for faster time to completion and return on investment. Students manage their program at their own pace and typically complete their degree in 2–3 years. All courses are designed and facilitated by Loyola faculty members, creating a unique, relevant and robust learning experience for students.

Loyola offers convenient course locations in Columbia, Timonium, as well as select courses in downtown Baltimore.  

Part-Time MBA Format Options:


Students take a blend of courses – hybrid and online. Hybrid courses are 8 weeks long, and include one in-person class and one online asynchronous session per week. Online courses may be synchronous, asynchronous, or a combination of the two. Our dedicated program advisors work with each student to design an individualized plan – keeping specialization, pace, and preferred location in mind. 


The Loyola MBA is also offered in a fully online format with 8-week courses. Our approach to online learning is highlighted by small class size and a personalized student experience. Online courses are primarily asynchronous and include opportunities for faculty and student interaction.

Both formats offer resources in career services, mentoring, networking, and study tour opportunities to help leverage the Loyola MBA experience and immerse yourself in the Loyola community. 

MBA Specializations

The Loyola MBA encourages students to customize the curriculum by aligning their course choices with personal interests and career goals. All specialization are available to students in the online program. We currently offer several specializations in a variety of top industry focus areas:
