The MBA program at Loyola University New Orleans College of Business will host two open houses and informational sessions this Fall. The MBA program prepares graduates for employment in prestigious organizations. Recent graduates have obtained advanced professional appointments in such large national companies as General Electric, General Motors, Symetra, Shell and many others.

Open houses will be held on the following Thursdays: October 17, and November 21. The open houses begin at 6 p.m. in Miller Hall, Room 112 on Loyola’s main campus. Attendees can enjoy light refreshments followed by an information and question session with MBA Staff. Registration for the open house is recommended but not required. Loyola’s MBA $50 application fee will be waived for any open house attendee.

Loyola’s MBA program prepares leaders to take an organization to new levels of performance and holds several advantages to its peers. MBA students at Loyola not only follow the Baldrige Framework for Performance Excellence, a highly advanced systems-based structure for leading organizations, but also are offered the opportunity to complete complementary Six Sigma and Project Management certifications.

The Baldrige Framework is based on an internationally recognized structure for increasing performance in organizations, simultaneously increasing profits, controlling costs, inspiring customer loyalty, enhancing worker capabilities and improving operations.

“Six Sigma is a quality improvement methodology that is used by most of the top companies in the country for controlling variation and reducing costs. It’s a highly prized, internationally recognized standard,” said Jerry Goolsby, Ph.D., M.B.A., director of graduate programs for the College of Business. “When a Six Sigma certification from the American Society for Quality is combined with a Project Management Institute certification, our students obtain very impressive jobs. In fact, I would argue the certifications are worth more than most any MBA degree today.”
