The College of Business Administration (CBA) at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) is one of the top business schools in the nation. Established in 1926 as a center for strategic thinking and innovation in Southern California, we strive for academic excellence and prepare students — from eager undergraduates to experienced executives — to use their immense talents and unique skills to advance the interests of both industry and society.

Made in L.A.

Los Angeles is the creative capital of the world and a global engine of innovation and invention. Aerospace, entertainment, technology, fashion, international finance, biotechnology, manufacturing, marketing — it's all here in the third largest metropolitan economy in the world. LMU's beautiful bluff-top campus is centered in the heart of Silicon Beach, a thriving coastal start-up community stretching from Santa Monica to El Segundo that's home to Google, Facebook, Snapchat, Yahoo!, Hulu, The Honest Company, YouTube and more than 1,000 start-ups, venture capital firms and business incubators.

The CBA experience is invigorated by real-world learning opportunities across our incredible city — internships, industry mentors, global conferences, networking events and more. We cultivate close relationships with L.A. business leaders who sit on our advisory boards, serve as entrepreneurs-in-residence, provide feedback on student projects and much more.

Rewarding and Relevant

For nearly a century, CBA has built a national reputation for its academic rigor and commitment to the Jesuit values of ethical stewardship and compassionate service. Led by an extraordinary faculty of teacher-scholars, our students learn the tremendous opportunities and real challenges of a globally connected, 21st century business world.
