Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management has launched a partnership with The Institute of World Politics (IWP), a graduate school in Washington, D.C., that teaches national security and international affairs. The partnership creates opportunities for students at Loyola and IWP to study under faculty at both schools.

“We’re excited to open doors for our students interested in taking what they learned at Sellinger into the realm of national security and international affairs as well as providing an opportunity to participate in a differentiated internship while an undergraduate,” said Mary Ann Scully, MBA ’79, dean of Loyola’s Sellinger School of Business. “Our collaboration with The Institute of World Politics also opens doors for IWP students interested in advancing and demonstrating their business acumen at Loyola to complement their national security and international affairs education. This collaboration leverages the strengths of the two institutions to the benefit of our students’ success.”

The partnership includes a $2,200-per-semester scholarship for Loyola graduates pursuing a graduate degree on-site at IWP. In addition, Loyola graduates in IWP’s online Master of Arts program pay a reduced tuition of $500 per credit hour. Loyola graduates can enroll at IWP through a streamlined admission process with early assurance.

In addition, the partnership provides Loyola undergraduate students priority consideration for IWP’s internship program in Washington, D.C., which prepares participants for a career in national security and statecraft.

“We designed the partnership to provide maximum benefit to Sellinger students and students at The Institute of World Politics,” said Hung-bin Ding, Ph.D., associate dean at Loyola’s Sellinger School. “As we continue to collaborate, Loyola students will get to visit The Institute of World Politics, and we welcome The Institute’s students at Sellinger and on our international study tours. We’re looking forward to growing our relationship.”

Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management in Baltimore delivers an internationally recognized Jesuit business education. Recognized for its scholarship, ethical leadership, and tradition of excellence, the Sellinger School delivers a wide range of sought-after fields of study including eight undergraduate majors and 11 undergraduate minors as well as full-time, part-time, and fully online MBA and Master of Accounting programs.
