Loyola launched the first Bachelor of Business Administration in sustainability management major in Maryland last year that examines how corporations deliver value to people, planet, and profit while creating and sustaining a competitive advantage. The interdisciplinary program prepares students to create sustainable solutions for businesses, the natural environment and society.

The “Career Conversations: Sustainability Management” series was launched in January with an initial virtual event featuring Tiago Cruz, senior manager, supplier sustainability program at Johnson & Johnson. The upcoming virtual events are open to the public. To learn more and register, visit
