Mission

The Sellinger School provides academically challenging management education inspired by Jesuit traditions and values. The School embraces the principle of educating the whole person-body, mind, and spirit. The undergraduate experience helps to transform and prepare the student to learn, lead, and serve in a diverse and rapidly changing world. Graduate programs serve working professionals who seek knowledge, personal development, professional certification, and membership in the network of Sellinger School alumni/ae. Both undergraduate and graduate education proactively foster the principles of excellence and cura personalis in a climate that facilitates learning for each individual, develops values for a life of service, and teaches the skills of learning for life.

History

Loyola was founded in Baltimore in 1852 by the Society of Jesus and was instilled with its core values: excellence in all things and cura personalis. Business education at Loyola began with undergraduate courses being offered in 1943. Loyola initiated its Master of Business Administration (MBA) program in 1967 and the Master of Science in Finance (MSF) in 1975. The full-time Emerging Leaders MBA was introduced in 2010. In Fall 2014, Loyola started a specialized Master of Accounting (MAcc). The full-time, 12-month cohort program is designed for those with an undergraduate degree in accounting (or equivalent accounting coursework) who are seeking the 30 additional credits required to obtain licensure as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). All of these programs are instrumental in contributing to Loyola's long history of excellence.

In 1980, the School of Business was formed as a separate entity, being named the Joseph A. Sellinger, S.J., School of Business and Management in 1984. The Sellinger School Board of Sponsors was formed in 1981 and continues as an ongoing consultative group supporting the quality of the school. By 1990, Loyola had achieved accreditation by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business in its undergraduate, graduate, and accounting programs and had established a chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, the business student honor society. The Sellinger School enjoys its reputation as the business school of choice in the Baltimore metropolitan area.

The Sellinger School's educational objectives are captured in the following learning goals:
