The College of Business Administration at Los Angeles-based Loyola Marymount University was established in 1926 and is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. The mission of the College of Business Administration is to educate for ethical leadership by developing a mindset that encourages people to take action, to motivate others, to achieve results through others, to learn from mistakes and to take responsibility for organizing scarce resources to achieve desired results. Education for ethical leadership is not simply teaching ethics and leadership as disciplines - it's about encouraging people to observe, think, learn and perform as ethical leaders in any business function or activity, at any level. It's teaching people to look for opportunities where they can demonstrate their leadership skills and full potential. The College of Business Administration feels that understanding career preparation and management is of critical importance - both to our undergraduate and graduate student population - for our continued advancement and success as both a teaching and research institution. Through our numerous programs and events, we strive to open student minds and keep the focus on meaningful business careers from early on in the students’ education. The College of Business Administration remains committed to Jesuit academic and ethical traditions. We are devoted not only to instilling innovative business ideas and competent business practices, but also to standards of moral conduct for tomorrow’s leaders - leaders who will be equipped to lead with integrity and compassion, as well as technical expertise. We do this by preserving our proud tradition of close interaction between a dedicated faculty and our students, community service requirements and a rigorous academic curriculum. Approximately 1,500 undergraduate students and 250 graduate students are enrolled in the College of Business Administration. Undergraduate degree offerings include: BS Accounting, BS and BBA Applied Information Management Systems, BBA Entrepreneurship, BBA Marketing, BBA Management and BBA Finance. Graduate degree offerings include: MBA and Executive MBA. The College of Business Administration recently launched the M-School: Institute of Marketing at LMU, which is a breakthrough undergraduate program designed to deliver a world-class advertising and marketing education that is relevant to today’s digitally-connected marketing and business environment. In the fall of 2013, the College of Business Administration introduced a Master of Science in Accounting program to help students obtain the additional 30 credit hours needed for CPA licensure. In addition to the MBA, EMBA and MSA programs, the College of Business Administration offers several related programs, including the JD/MBA which runs concurrently with the Loyola Law School. This program allows a full-time student to complete the requirements for both degrees in four years. The college also offers the Systems Engineering Leadership Program (SELP) for working engineers and scientists in the engineering and business disciplines to make them leaders of highly complex technical endeavors within their sponsoring organizations. This is a dual degree: an MBA and an MS in Systems Engineering. The part-time MBA program is considered one of the top programs in the nation and allows students to choose from late afternoon and evening classes. Small classes provide optimum interaction with professors and classmates. And if students need to relocate while enrolled, they can complete their degree requirements through the Jesuit Transfer Network. The 20-month Saturday-only EMBA program for experienced managers has been designed to meet the realities of the new global business environment. The College of Business Administration has four centers of excellence: Center for Accounting Ethics, Governance and the Public Interest, Center for Asian Business, Center for Entrepreneurship and Center for Ethics and Business. The centers organize their own special guest lectures, student competitions and study abroad programs, all which work to enhance the learning environment by expanding the mind.
