Student Life

All of Sellinger’s programs attract high-caliber individuals. Students are “very motivat­ed and intelligent,” and while they can sometimes be “competitive,” almost everyone is “helpful and friendly.” Most students work full time, and many are married and have families. Students say their peers’ different personal and professional backgrounds real­ly “add to the learning environment.” “Everyone brings something unique,” one student explains, and this creates an “innovative, challenging, and intellectually stimulating cul­ture.” Students are “opinionated and interested in the topics covered in classes,” which makes for “engaging” and “active discussions.”Most students at Loyola are incredibly busy and generally don’t have time to socialize with other students. Some students would like to see “more opportunities for socializing and networking outside of the classroom,” as “it would help strengthen the program and build upon the teamwork and morale already present.”

Career

The Sellinger School of Business does not have its own career office, so students must use the Career Center that serves the rest of the undergraduate and graduate students. Loyola’s Career Center is still able to provide personal and relevant help to graduate business students, however. Experienced advisors offer career counseling, and the center holds various workshops, mock interviews, and resume critiques. Sellinger has a very strong alumni network that provides valuable networking and mentoring opportunities for students. Career fairs and on-campus recruiting events help students make connec­tions to future employers. Businesses that attended the most recent career fair include ING Financial Partners, Liberty Mutual, State Farm, Primerica, The Central Intelligence Agency, Financial Management Service, Morgan Stanley, and The Neilson Corporation.

The Princeton Review

Students Say

Loyola’s Sellinger School of Business and Management is anchored by core Jesuit beliefs. It offers a “value-based” education that emphasizes “reflective learning” and the impor­tance of ethical behavior and leadership skills. All students must take two courses in the Law and Social Responsibility department: one on legal and regulatory compliance and another on ethics and social responsibility. The department also offers electives, such as legal and managerial issues in not-for-profit organizations and intersections among power, privilege, and professional identity for those wanting to further specialize in the area. Students say they “appreciate the Jesuit influence” and name the Jesuit “commit­ment to excellence” and “strong belief in business ethics” as reasons for picking the school.Loyola is dedicated to its students and offers four different MBA programs, at two loca­tions, with varying delivery methods. This ensures that students’ needs are met, and that they are not forced into a cookie-cutter program. The most popular program is the part-time Professional MBA, which offers evening classes and the freedom to vary the num­ber of credits students take each semester. The MBA Fellows program is designed for professionals with managerial experience and has Saturday classes only. The Executive MBA is a cohort program for seasoned professionals that meets all day Friday and Saturday every other weekend. Loyola’s Emerging Leaders MBA is a full-time, 12-month accelerated program for early career students. The school also offers an MS in finance and a certificate in accounting and cyber security. All of these programs have a “great reputation” and a reasonable price.Loyola’s part-time programs “cater to working individuals” and give them “flexibility and greater control” over the curriculum. Classes are offered at convenient times in locations close to the Baltimore area. All programs require a set of core classes to ensure students have a wide and strong understanding of the business world, but some professional MBA students may find requirements waived if they graduated from college in the past few years and received high grades in similar courses. After completing these courses, profes­sional MBA students may concentrate in accounting, finance, information systems, inter­national business, management, or marketing. Classes are challenging and require group projects. While theory is taught, the program emphasizes “where business and the country are headed, and how to be a part of that.” One student loves that “many of the concepts taught can be applied as both an entrepreneur and corporate executive.” Loyola’s profes­sors fall at “both ends of the spectrum.” Students find the full-time faculty is “incredible” and “very effective and encouraging.” Some of the adjunct professors, however, should “simply stick with their day jobs.” The administration also gets mixed reviews, but most find them “fantastic to work with.” When you consider Loyola’s “great reputation,” price, and willingness to support student success, it’s no wonder students say going there is a “great experience.”
