Welcome From the Dean

“Business is a noble vocation, directed to producing wealth and improving the world.” (Pope Francis addressing Congress, Sept. 24, 2015)

Kathleen Getz, dean, Sellinger School of BusinessWelcome to Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management, where I am honored to serve as dean. Loyola has been serving students and the Baltimore business community for more than 75 years. The world is always in need of good business minds, but we are equally focused on inspiring and preparing students to become responsible business leaders who make their companies and their communities stronger. 

At the Sellinger School of Business and Management we recognize and are grateful for the good that business does for society. We are proud to prepare our students to lead businesses as they make useful products and provide needed services, create opportunities for dignified work, and pay a return to their investors. In all that we do, we are committed to supporting and strengthening our students, our business partners, and the world.

To offer our students a superior business education, our curricular and co-curricular programs are infused with innovative entrepreneurial thinking. As teacher-scholars, our faculty are attentive to each student’s ambitions and needs, taking a deep personal interest in each student’s academic success.

At our Jesuit institution, we integrate into our business education the Jesuit values of ethics and service and a constant challenge to improve. We understand that business, through its ordinary day-to-day activities, promotes social justice as it lifts people out of poverty—and we help our students embrace that ideal and keep in mind that through their work, they are bettering their communities, locally and globally.

Thank you for your interest in the Sellinger School and the exceptional education we offer to our students. I invite you to learn more about the Sellinger School and the opportunity we offer students to fulfill their calling to do good for the world as they excel in business.

Kathleen A. Getz, Dean
