Business School Academics
Whether you enroll in our executive education program, graduate program, or undergraduate program, Loyola University Maryland's Sellinger School of Business and Management will teach you more than just the fundamentals of business.
You will learn how to view the world from new perspectives, discern situations more clearly, and understand them more deeply. You will graduate a prepared, ethical, effective leader. A leader who makes a difference because of the difference our education makes in you.
The Sellinger educational experience is based on the following four pillars:
Ethics are an essential part of our Jesuit fabric and have been central to our business program since its inception. In each course and case study, students are challenged to test their positions against the framework of ethical decision-making.
Jesuit education has always embraced reflection as a powerful learning tool and leadership fundamental helping you think on a deeper level, see things more clearly, and understand more fully. We believe reflection is crucial in being an effective business leader. It challenges you to ask the deeper questions. It helps you achieve a greater understanding of yourself and your evolving worldview. You can more reliably discern the fundamental nature of a problem, leading to stronger, sounder solutions.
Being attuned to the complexities of the global marketplace is vital in today's business world, not just for achieving success, but also for arriving at thoughtful, strategic decisions that have far-reaching impacts. In addition to international study tours and numerous international business classes that delve into specific global topics, students are constantly expected to view all issues and test decisions from a global perspective. This heightened awareness ensures a worldly and sophisticated view of the broad business landscape. In addition, the practice of stepping out of one's perspective and looking beyond the familiar helps cultivate the respect and appreciation for diversity and individual differences that makes for a more effective, socially responsible leader.
Our entire program is designed to create a highly qualified strategic leader. One whose intellect allows them to think quickly and with precision. One who has the rare ability to step outside of a situation, assess it in its entirety, and make sound, ethical decisions that bring about systemic change. People who, by virtue of these abilities, naturally rise to even higher leadership positions.
