Founded in 1980, Loyola's Joseph A. Sellinger, S.J. School of Business and Management provides academically challenging management education inspired by Jesuit traditions and values. Guided by the philosophy that true education informs students’ minds, bodies, and spirits, the Sellinger School’s undergraduate and graduate programs strive to combine knowledge, preparation for leadership, personal development, and professional certification with a commitment to ethics and the values of service.

While the School is headquartered at Loyola's main campus along North Charles Street in Baltimore, it also schedules classes at Loyola's graduate campuses in Timonium and Columbia to better meet the needs of working students.

Sellinger's timeline of key milestones are as follows:

  • 1937 – Loyola first offered courses in accounting and business administration at the undergraduate level.
  • 1943 – The baccalaureate degree in business administration was first awarded; the accounting major was added shortly thereafter.
