Loyola University Maryland’s Financial Management Association has been awarded the “Superior Chapter” designation for the 2010-11 academic year. This highly coveted award is given to less than 5 percent of all FMA chapters. Loyola has been awarded this designation for the second year in a row and the fifth time in the past nine years. Loyola first won the award for the 2002-03 academic year.
The honor means that Loyola University Maryland will be recognized worldwide on the Financial Management Association International’s (FMA) website and in FMA publications in September 2011. The FMA is the leader in developing and disseminating knowledge about financial decision making. FMA's members include academics and practitioners.
Loyola’s undergraduate group was co-moderated by Frank D’Souza, Ph.D., and Jon Fulkerson, Ph.D., assistant professors of finance at the Sellinger School of Business and Management. During the 2010-11 academic year, membership grew by more than 40 students. Loyola’s FMA chapter hosted eight speakers on a variety of topics, sponsored a stock investment game, and traveled to New York City for a tour of several financial institutions. The academic year was topped off with its annual banquet, which honored Brad Dickerson, EMBA '03, CFO of Under Armour, as the chapter’s CFO of the year.
The Sellinger School was also recently recognized in the area of finance by U.S. News & World Report. The magazine also ranked the Sellinger School No. 21 in undergraduate specialty programs.
