Loyola Marymount University Bulletin 2013-2014
Up one level:
The mission of the Systems Engineering Leadership Program (SELP) is to educate working engineers and scientists in the engineering and business disciplines that will make them leaders of highly complex technical endeavors within their sponsoring organizations.
SELP will confer two degrees upon its graduates: an MBA and an MS in Systems Engineering. Students may obtain either an MS in Systems Engineering or an MBA degree as a stand-alone by fulfilling the individual degree requirements. A certificate program in Systems Engineering is also available.
Both the MBA program in the College of Business Administration and the Systems Engineering Program in the Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering must accept students applying to SELP for admission. The admissions process to both Colleges will be coordinated within the University. Prospective students need to submit only one application to the LMU Graduate Division.
Course of Study
Students enrolled in SELP are advised by the SELP Program Director. Although no undergraduate business classes are required, students who have taken business courses may qualify to have some of their MBA core requirements waived (see waiver policy).
The SELP Program requires a total of 22 courses from the Systems Engineering curriculum as well as the MBA Program curriculum. A detailed description of the course requirements for the SELP Program can be found in the section pertaining to the Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering.
The SELP students will be expected to meet all course requirements associated with the MBA Program classes. In addition, SELP students will be expected to adhere to the policies and procedures established for all students in the MBA Program.
The SELP students will be expected to meet the course requirements in both the Systems Engineering and the MBA programs. SELP students will be expected to adhere to the policies and procedures established for all students in the MBA program. The System Engineering portion of the requirements (11 courses) is exactly the same as those listed above under "Systems Engineering Program Requirements."
The MBA requirements include 12 courses listed below. Additional information about the MBA program, including procedures for waiving core MBA courses, may be found in the MBA section of this Bulletin. Students who receive a grade of less than "B" in any 500-level course or a grade of less than "C" in any 600-level course will not have the course count toward their degree. The overall minimum GPA required for graduation is 3.0.
