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. The 2018 series will take place Tuesday, March 20, through Thursday, March 22. All events are open to Loyola students, faculty, staff, alumni, the Baltimore community, and friends of the University.
"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 the keynote address titled "Purpose Is the New Bottom Line." Gerald has traveled the nation to discover how mission-driven entrepreneurs, far from Wall St. or Silicon Valley, are 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.
All events are hosted by the Sellinger School of Business and Management and co-sponsored by the Center for Community Service and Justice, the Student Government Association, Innovation Task Force, the Microfinance Club and AKPsi.
