Become an agency leader with competitive business skills.

Leading a criminal justice department or agency is a complex job—one that can require advanced knowledge both of your specialized field and of general management principles like finance, human resources, and organizational behavior.

By pursuing a master’s degree in both Criminology and Justice and Business Administration, you can earn two degrees in less time than it would take to earn them separately—preparing you for complex challenges in a variety of advanced leadership roles.

And, as part of Loyola’s esteemed business school, this 100% online program offers the same AACSB-accredited curriculum that helps set our graduates apart. You’ll learn from expert faculty as you study on a schedule that fits your life and your needs.

Expand your career options with dual credentials.

By earning both your MCJ and your MBA at Loyola, you’ll build skills you can apply immediately in your workplace and stand apart as you pursue roles like:

  • Police Chief
  • Agency Director
  • Public Policy Advocate
  • Emergency Management Director
  • Financial Examiner
  • Court Administrator

Flexible online courses. Taught by experts.

To earn your MCJ and MBA, you’ll need to complete 61 credit hours of both foundational courses and electives.

Example courses include:

  • Theories of Criminal Behavior
  • Program Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation
  • Organizational Leadership
  • Financial & Managerial Accounting
