“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:
- Current LMU student outside of the College of Business Administration who has completed at least 90 credits.
- Minimum GPA of 3.2 to waive the GMAT/GRE requirement (students with a GPA below 3.2 may apply if they submit GMAT or GRE results.)
- We recommend submitting your online application for the MSM program no later than June 30 following the completion of your junior year. Select “Management 4+1 (MS)” as your Program of Interest.
