Loyola University Maryland’s graduate programs in business, speech, and psychology are ranked in the “2021 Best Graduate Schools” rankings from U.S. News & World Report.

The Sellinger School of Business and Management was included among the nation’s best business schools for graduate specialties in accounting, business analytics, and finance. The Loyola College of Arts & Sciences was also included for best health programs in speech-language pathology and clinical psychology.

The specialty rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research, and students. The data for the rankings in six disciplines comes from statistical surveys of more than 2,081 programs and from reputation surveys sent to more than 24,603 academics and professionals, conducted in fall 2019 and early 2020.

The national specialty rankings for the Sellinger School are:

Accounting: No. 25

Business analytics: No. 21

Finance: No. 20

The Sellinger School is accredited by the International Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and holds an additional AACSB accreditation for its accounting program. AACSB is the only agency that accredits accounting programs in the United States and only 182 accounting programs worldwide are accredited. 

The health rankings for Loyola College are:

Speech-language pathology: No. 82

Clinical psychology: No. 129

All health rankings are based solely on the results of peer assessment surveys which were sent to deans, other administrators, and/or faculty at accredited degree programs at schools in each discipline.
