Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management was ranked by BusinessWeek magazine as No. 3 in business law, No. 5 in marketing, No. 11 in sustainability, and No. 15 in ethics in the publication’s undergraduate specialty rankings.
As a part of BusinessWeek’s survey measuring the “Best Undergraduate B-Schools”—in which Sellinger ranked No. 45 overall and No. 23 in academic quality—senior business students from the 139 participating schools were asked to assign letter grades from A to F to their business programs in 12 specialty areas. Sellinger ranked above such leading institutions as University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza School and New York University’s Stern School in business law and above University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and Cornell University in marketing.
“Infusing ethics and social responsibility throughout our business curriculum is a strong focus at the Sellinger School. We’re one of the only business schools to house a law and social responsibility department,” said Karyl Leggio, Ph.D., dean of the Sellinger School. “Our goal is to teach our students to lead with a global perspective and make decisions that will have a positive impact on the greater community.”
