Quinlan School of Business – Loyola University - Part-Time MBA
Loyola University Part-Time MBA Program Structure
The Loyola University Quinlan School of Business Next Generation part-time MBA operates on a quarter system, with new students beginning in the Fall and Spring. Generally, the fall quarter begins in late August and the spring quarter begins in late February. Courses are scheduled during evenings and weekends, which allows part-time students to work during the daytime. Students can dictate the number of courses they enroll in during each 10-week quarter. Quinlan MBA students attend a required orientation session prior to commencing the program. While Loyola University’s full-time and part-time programs operate in conjunction with one another, a part-time course load is considered to be one to two courses per quarter, though full-time status is granted to any student taking two or more classes (six hours or more) per quarter. Part-time students typically complete their coursework within 2 years.
The Loyola University Quinlan School of Business part-time MBA curriculum consists of 12 classes; eight core classes, up to four of which can be waived based on experience or comparable class work, and four electives. Students are able to select a concentration. Concentration options include accounting, finance, entrepreneurship, marketing, and management.
