“4 + 1” Program Option for LMU Juniors

The Master of Science in Management (MSM) program offers an exciting option for LMU students outside of the College of Business Administration who are interested in earning a graduate degree in management. Add a +1 (one year of graduate school) to your 4-year undergraduate degree.

The “4 + 1” option gives you the opportunity to start taking courses for your graduate degree in management during your senior year at LMU. Students admitted into this program will be able to enroll in one graduate course during the fall semester and one graduate course during the spring semester of their senior year. These courses will count both toward your MSM degree and your undergraduate degree. Because your undergraduate tuition will cover the cost of these two graduate-level courses, you can save more than $8,000 in graduate tuition costs by applying to the MSM program after your junior year!

Requirements for admission into the MSM 4 + 1 program in fall 2021:

  • Current LMU junior outside the College of Business Administration who expects to graduate in May or August 2022.
  • Minimum GPA of 3.2 strongly preferred. Students with a GPA below 3.2 may submit GRE or GMAT scores to strengthen their application. Test scores are not required for applicants with a GPA above 3.2.
  • Submit your online application by March 22,2021. Select “Management 4+1 (MS)” as your Program of Interest.
