Loyola presents "Building a Better World Through Business," an annual series of events designed to celebrate the good that business does for society as it works to transform the world through sustainable economic and social development and bridge the dichotomy between "doing business" and "doing good." The 2018 series will take place Monday, March 19, through Thursday, March 22. Open to Loyola students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the Baltimore community, the events will highlight and celebrate the good that business does for its many stakeholders and society at large.

"Building a Better World Through Business" is an initiative under the leadership of Kathleen A. Getz, Ph.D., dean of the Sellinger School of Business and Management: "We are producing the leaders of the future—leaders with an entrepreneurial spirit. I hope they will graduate with an optimistic approach to their work and their lives. I always encourage students and faculty to see a world of possibilities, rather than one of burdens."

A number of distinct events will be featured as part of the 2018 Building a Better World Through Business series.

On Tuesday March 20, Casey Gerald, co-founder of MBAs Across America (MBAx), will deliver a keynote address on "Purpose Is the New Bottom Line." Gerald has traveled the nation to discover how mission-driven entrepreneurs, far from Wall St. or Silicon Valley, were tackling the biggest challenges facing our communities. He is currently writing his first book, There Will Be No Miracles Here, to be published by Riverhead Books.

The full list of 2018 Building a Better World Through Business events will be posted in Spring 2018.
