      Educational return on investment

      LMU graduates enter the working world with a competitive advantage – an ability to demonstrate the value of their degree both professionally and financially. Lions are in high demand among employers throughout Los Angeles and beyond, and often pursue career trajectories that result in leadership positions at their company of choice. Families’ investment in an LMU education is largely manageable, evidenced both by LMU’s low average student loan debt and loan default rates.

      Internships and
      real-world experience

      Over two-thirds of LMU students take advantage of internships during their college experience, building desirable skills while connecting classroom learning to real world situations in the for-profit, non-profit, government, and service sectors.

      Working closely with Career and Professional Development (CPD), students have access to over 1,500 internships annually through LionJobs, LMU’s online career management portal. Internships can be completed as nearby as Los Angeles and as far away as any international location of the student’s choosing. Students often elect to register their internships for academic credit.

      International and Transfer students are offered comparable opportunities as first-year students, successfully completing internships and going on to rewarding careers.

      Living a life of purpose

      The return on investment of an LMU education goes well beyond financial. Rooted in the Jesuit tradition, LMU’s commitment to service and justice fosters learning that allows Lions to see themselves in others. This is exemplified by the sizable number of alumni who pursue work in organizations such as Teach for America, the Peace Corps and Jesuit Volunteer Corps.

      Lions are committed to service from the moment they set foot on campus. Students volunteer nearly 200,000 service hours a year with 250 community organizations. More than 200 alumni volunteer annually through LMU’s global alumni community service program, Alumni for Others.
