About the MBA/MSA Dual Degree at Loyola

The MBA/MSA dual degree provides students with a depth of knowledge in financial and public accounting and the business acumen sought by leading business, accounting, and financial firms.

Students completing the dual-degree program will earn an MBA with a specialization in accounting and an MSA degree. The dual degree in business and accounting requires four fewer courses than if each degree is earned separately. A maximum gap of one quarter is allowed between the completion of one program and the start of the other.
