Loyola’s Sellinger School of Business launches Executive Education

Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management launched an Executive Education program starting with three seminar series this fall to help qualified, mid-level professionals develop business skills that benefit their organizations and progress their careers.

“We’re offering participants immediate, practical skills they can take back to their organizations tomorrow and make a difference,” said Scott Moores, director of Executive Education and business development at the Sellinger School. “The tools, knowledge, and abilities participants gain in this program will substantially benefit their careers, organizations, and the Baltimore community.”

Sellinger designed Executive Education for managers with 10 or more years of experience seeking promotion to higher level management and director positions. The non-degree program will help participants network with other professionals in the region and expand leadership acumen through personal and group outcomes.

Executive Education series reflect the needs of Baltimore’s business community and cover the following areas:

  • Individual leadership seminars will help professionals aspiring to positions of leadership, responsibility, and accountability, and will examine a contemporary business case. Participants will learn alongside colleagues from different industries and track their leadership growth. Mark Debinski, MBA ’95, founder and president of Bluewater Advisory, will lead the series.
  • Strategic planning seminars provide strategic and leadership skills in an interactive format, encouraging critical thinking and the exchange of ideas, and will also look at a business case. Participants will design a strategic plan and develop a set of strategic planning tools. Mark Hubbard, J.D., MBA ’97, an affiliate assistant professor at the Sellinger School, attorney and strategic management expert, will be the instructor.
  • Leading innovation seminars will help managers create and maintain competitive advantage through innovation and continuous improvement. Participants will develop strategies to facilitate innovation in their organizations. Seminars will use a mix of brief lectures, discussions, videos, and case studies led by Gerard Athaide, Ph.D., professor and chair of marketing at the Sellinger School.

“We studied the Baltimore market and developed a comprehensive program attuned to the region’s business needs,” said Kathleen Getz, Ph.D., dean of the Sellinger School. “We offer seminars infused with Loyola’s values of thoughtful and ethical leadership and business education as a force for good.”

In addition to seminars for individuals, Executive Education offers custom seminars designed for organizations based on their development needs. Sellinger experts can collaborate with organizations to offer specific topical sessions or broader multi-faceted programs.

Executive Education seminars begin this October with additional seminars coming in the spring. More information and registration is available at the Executive Education seminars page.
