The MBA program has a very active MBA Student Association. The purpose of the association is to provide graduate business students with opportunities to develop leadership skills and to prepare for professional positions in the private and public sectors.
This organization provides an excellent means for MBA students to interact with other students, faculty, and community leaders. Students are also given the opportunity to discuss and initiate positive changes within the MBA program. Special meetings are scheduled with leaders from the civic and business community of greater New Orleans.
Just as important, the MBA Association ensures that while we all work hard in the program, we also have a lot of fun. The MBA Association is responsible for planning or assisting in the planning of the many social events that MBA students enjoy. These include community service and networking events. Membership is open to all MBA students.
The MBA program at Loyola University New Orleans is very diverse. Many of our MBA candidates have undergraduate business degrees, but an average of 50% of our students have non-business degrees in fields as diverse as engineering, journalism, education, and others.
Our students come from over 40 different undergraduate universities, including Boston College, George Washington University, Louisiana State University, Millsaps College, Purdue University, Rhodes College, Tulane University, the U. S. Naval Academy, Villanova University, and more.
The goal of getting your Master of Business Administration is to open doors in your career, which would otherwise remain closed. We offer individualized assistance with résumé and cover letter development, career strategies, and personal development through the Career Development Center.
In the last few years, MBA students were hired at a variety of local, national, and international businesses, including Chevron, Cox Communications, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Ltd., Entergy, Ernst & Young, Harrah's Entertainment, JPMorgan, Northwestern Mutual, the Ochsner Health System, Shell, Prudential Financial, and the Target Corporation.
