Sellinger School of Business

Sellinger School of Business and Management:
Preparing leaders committed to positive change

In 2013, Sellinger was the only Maryland school counted as a best undergraduate business school by Bloomberg Businessweek, which placed several of our programs within the top 10, including business law (No. 2) and marketing (No. 5). We are proud of our rankings and reputation, and of our graduates’ work to create economic growth and change in Baltimore and beyond.

Doing well by doing good

Nearly one-quarter of Loyola University Maryland students pursue a major within the Sellinger School. The world is always in need of good business minds, but we are equally focused on inspiring and preparing students to become ethical, discerning, socially responsible business leaders who make their companies and their communities stronger. Doing well for yourself is fine; doing well for yourself and for others is the Jesuit tradition we espouse at Loyola.

The Bright Minds, Bold Hearts campaign will support our efforts to mold young minds into compassionate leaders whose innovative ideas and ethical business practices will elevate Loyola’s reputation—and improve the world.

Endowment Goals

  • Funding for faculty chairs, which will enable Loyola to continue to recruit and retain the most talented, dedicated, and passionate professors, who are eager to explore the frontiers of knowledge and inspire their students to become skilled and ethical business leaders
  • Scholarships and fellowships to help ensure that the most talented undergraduate and graduate students choose Sellinger over the other elite business programs vying for their attention
  • Programmatic support that gives students broader access to service-learning courses, robust internship opportunities, and international study experiences. Priorities include:
    • The school’s innovative SELL (Student Experiential Learning Lab), Loyola’s state-of-the-art trading room, which provides hands-on learning, research, and service-learning opportunities for students
    • The small business center for the York Road Initiative, in which faculty and students will provide consultation to small businesses along the York Road commercial corridor and offer adult education courses covering topics such as financial literacy and social media

Current-Use Goals

  • The Dean’s Fund for Excellence, which can be used to support Sellinger’s most pressing needs. In recent years, discretionary funds have been used to help launch the School’s cyber security certificate program, enable faculty to present research at international conferences, foster new course development, establish a research incubator, and support the purchase of Bloomberg trading terminals

Steve Vintz, '90, an accounting graduate, supports scholarship in the Sellinger School. He often thought of giving back in the context of retirement, but then asked himself, "Why wait to give when I can start to make a difference now?"
