The Loyola University Maryland Sellinger School of Business and Management is ranked No. 5 in the country on Bloomberg Businessweek’s new list of the top 10 "Best Undergraduate B-Schools for Marketing" for 2013.
Loyola is the only Maryland institution and only Jesuit institution on the list, which includes the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Virginia, and Cornell University, among others.
"We've always known our marketing program was outstanding, so I'm thrilled that it has been lauded for the third year in a row by a nationally-recognized business publication alongside programs at the nation's most elite business schools," said Karyl B. Leggio, Ph.D., dean of the Sellinger School. "Our exceptional marketing faculty continue to anchor the Sellinger School’s rigorous, Jesuit academic environment, which, across all of our programs, challenges students to think critically and strive for innovation, preparing them to become ethical leaders in their professional careers."
The Sellinger School's marketing program is no stranger to accolades. In 2012, Gerard Athaide, Ph.D., department chair and professor of marketing, was named one of the world’s top-50 innovation management scholars by The Journal of Product Innovation Management, a leading academic journal devoted to the latest research, theory, and practice in new product and service development. Businessweek ranked Loyola's marketing program No. 15 in the country that same year, along with high marks for microeconomics, macroeconomics, business law, information systems, and ethics.
Overall, the Sellinger School was recently ranked No. 53 on Businessweek’s "Best Undergraduate Business Schools 2013," the only ranked undergraduate program in the state of Maryland. In addition, both the accounting and finance programs within the Sellinger School's MBA program were recently ranked in the top 30 nationally by U.S. News and World Report.
The latest Businessweek specialty ranking is based on undergraduate business student responses to an online survey about the full range of their business school experience. All students surveyed were from the class of 2013.
