Quinlan School of Business

Bachelor/Master Dual Degrees

The Quinlan School of Business offers dual degree programs which combine one of Quinlan’s master’s degrees with one of several Loyola undergraduate degrees found in both the Quinlan School of Business, as well as other colleges and schools within Loyola University Chicago. Each of the programs allows students to earn the two respective degrees in a shorter period of time than completing them separately. Only students who have been accepted to a formal undergraduate/graduate dual degree program may enroll in MBA courses before they complete their undergraduate degree requirements.

BBA/MBA

The Bachelor of Business Administration/Master of Business Administration is an accelerated program which allows Loyola University Chicago undergraduate business students to earn the two respective degrees in a slightly shorter period of time than by completing each separately. The program allows students to take up to two MBA courses in their senior year of undergraduate work. Completion of the MBA degree program requires between 14 and 18 courses. Additionally, a prerequisite of calculus is required, but may be waived if previously completed with a grade of “B” or higher, or may be taken at Quinlan as part of the MBA degree. A maximum of four courses from the fundamental core can be waived for qualified students, depending on their academic background. A required undergraduate internship course (BSAD 351 or UNIV 390) must be completed before students may be admitted to the MBA program. The program requires a cumulative undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.2 in order for a student to be eligible for consideration. Students with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 do not need to take the GMAT.

BA/MSIMC

The Bachelor of Arts/Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications is an accelerated program which allows Loyola undergraduate public relations and advertising students to earn the two respective degrees in a slightly shorter period of time than by completing each separately. Students generally take two MSIMC courses during their senior year of undergraduate work, and students may be eligible to waive up to four MSIMC course requirements based on undergraduate courses taken and grades received in these courses. Students must complete the CMUN 396 undergraduate internship course (which is required for all Advertising/Public Relations majors to complete for their curriculum) before they may be accepted into the MSIMC program. The program requires a cumulative undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.5 in order for a student to be eligible for consideration.

BS/MBA

The Bachelor of Science /Master of Business Administration is an accelerated program which allows Loyola undergraduate students to earn the two respective degrees in a slightly shorter period of time than by completing each separately. There are currently three undergraduate Bachelor of Science programs which can be combined with the MBA: Biology, Environmental Science (offers both the BS/MBA & BA/MBA), and Health Systems Management. Students may be eligible for  course waivers based on their undergraduate courses taken and grades received in these courses. Specific requirements for each of the different BS/MBA programs should be discussed with their undergraduate department and with the Quinlan School of Business.

BBA/MSA

The Bachelor of Business Administration/Master of Science in Accountancy is very similar to the regular MSA program in terms of structure. Quinlan BBA students who complete their undergraduate degree with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 will not need to take the GMAT, as long as their quarter of enrollment into the MSA program is no more than one year after their undergraduate graduation.

BA/MSF; BS/MSF; BBA/MSF

The Bachelor of Arts/Master of Science in Finance, Bachelor of Science/Master of Science in Finance, and Bachelor of Business Administration/Master of Science in Finance are accelerated programs which allow Quinlan undergraduate students to earn the two respective degrees in a slightly shorter period of time than by completing each separately. Students generally take two MSF courses during their senior year of undergraduate work, and students may be eligible to waive up to four MSF course requirements based on undergraduate courses taken and grades received in these courses.
