Complete and submit an online application and pay a $50 non-refundable application fee.
- Resume: You will be required to upload a professional resume.
- Personal Statement: You will be required to upload a personal statement no more than 2 pages (12-point font, double-spaced) addressing why you are pursuing an M.S. in Business Analytics, the reasons you are applying to LMU and the unique strengths and background you will bring to our program.
Two Letters of Recommendation
Your letters may be from professional and/or academic references. You will include the contact information for your recommenders in your application, and they will be contacted by LMU to upload their letters directly into your application file. This requirement is waived for LMU undergraduate students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
Provide transcripts for all colleges or universities you have attended. You may upload unofficial transcripts directly into your online application. You should request an official electronic transcript from any institution where you earned a degree. If you are a current student or alumni of LMU, there is no need to request an official transcript from the LMU Registrar.
Request that official transcripts be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your university is unable to send an official transcript electronically, please have a physical transcript sent to:
Loyola Marymount University
1 LMU Drive
Charles Von der Ahe Building, Suite 235
Los Angeles, CA 90045
Applicants who have completed their postsecondary education from an institution outside the U.S. must have their transcript from their degree granting institution translated and evaluated by a U.S. transcript evaluation service. Please see our requirements for International Students for more information.
Applicants may be asked to participate in an interview with a member of the admission committee. Interviews are by invitation only.
GMAT/GRE Test Scores
GMAT/GRE test scores are not required; however, applicants with a GPA below 3.3 are strongly encouraged to submit test scores to demonstrate their quantitative skills. If you choose to submit test scores, they will be considered in the admission and scholarship awarding process. Strong test scores, regardless of your undergraduate academic record, can improve your chances of admission and scholarship. Applicants who choose to submit GMAT/GRE scores should use the following school codes:
- GMAT: MSX-XN-89
- GRE: 4403
International students have additional admission requirements.
Admitted candidates must confirm their commitment to attend and provide a non-refundable deposit of $1,000. The deposit will be applied to your tuition.
