About the Part-Time Program 

About 80% of Loyola's MBA student body studies in the Professional 'Part-Time' program. This part-time track is ideal for experienced executives who have been working for a number of years and are interested in advancing their careers. Students can take as few as two courses per semester and still complete their degrees within two years.

Within the part-time track, students are also able to complete an optional "Specialization Track" in their desired areas of speciality. In addition, part-time students who are interested in earning an additional graduate degree at Loyola may apply for our dual-degree programs.
