MBA - Christina Morales - College of Business - Loyola University New Orleans

Learn at night. Apply it during the day.

Either of our evening MBA schedules will provide you the same opportunity: to learn the industry, gain experience, and make real-world business connections in New Orleans that have been established by our top-ranked business school and Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Development.

The full-time, “Fast-track” schedule allows you to get the program done in the quickest amount of time (one calendar year), if your other obligations allow for it. For many professionals, the best option will be our part-time, professional schedule, which allows for as few as two courses per semester.

Explore our programs below to find out which works for you, and read about some of the entrepreneurial opportunities our students take advantage of here.

Full-time "Fast-track" Evening (1 yr)
