Management provides the leadership and direction for any organization. To survive, grow, and thrive, organizations need managers with a command of the knowledge of the field, excellent interpersonal communication skills, sensitivity to diverse and challenging cultures, and a respect for all individuals. Effective managers demonstrate a sense of passion for their work, a shared vision, and a high sense of social and corporate responsibility.
Management is the broadest of the six concentrations offered in the Sellinger School of Business and Management. The management concentration allows students to pursue a range of courses in leadership, decision making, human resources, law, small business, and international business.
Students are encouraged to work with their Sellinger advisor or management professor to develop an internship that satisfies academic, practical, and employer interests. The department’s management practicum enables students to complete an internship as part of the business curriculum. Loyola has on-going contacts and relationships with Baltimore area and Atlantic Seaboard businesses and corporations, ensuring a wealth of opportunities. Internship experience provides valuable lessons in “real world” management challenges. In addition, students may choose to pursue a management research project, an independent study of a specific management topic under the guidance of a faculty member.
Recent alumni have secured positions in areas as diverse as financial services, government agencies, human resources and the banking industry. They have taken positions with Black & Decker, the Chessie System, Marriott Corporation, the NFL Players Association, the City of Baltimore, Northrop Grumman, JP Morgan Chase, the Department of Defense and Bank of America.
