The Quinlan School of Business will allow program transfer credit for business courses taken elsewhere prior to matriculation at the lower-division level provided such courses are also offered at the lower-division level at Loyola. These lower-division level courses are stipulated by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the business school accreditation agency, as follows:
Principles of Accounting (six credit hours)
Principles of Economics: Macro and Micro (six credit hours)
Principles of Marketing (three credit hours)
Business Statistics (if college algebra is required as a prerequisite) (three credit hours)
Law and the Regulatory Environment of Business (three credit hours)
Loyola's upper-division requirements in finance, intermediate economics, human resources management, strategic management, and operations management will not be satisfied by courses taken elsewhere at the lower-division level or without junior or senior standing. Students transferring as juniors or seniors may be allowed to transfer credit after successful completion of an upper-division course taken at another institution if the Quinlan School of Business deems that the subject matter is congruent to a corresponding Loyola course.
