The Loyola University Maryland Sellinger School of Business and Management is ranked No. 2 in the country on Bloomberg Businessweek's new list of the top 10 "Best Undergraduate B-Schools for Business Law" for 2013.
Loyola is the only Maryland institution and only Jesuit institution on the list, which includes Emory University's Goizueta Business School, the University of Miami, and Cornell University, among others.
"This honor is a recognition of our truly exceptional business law faculty whose commitment to classroom engagement and innovation in their discipline consistently inspires their students and peers," said Karyl B. Leggio, Ph.D., dean of the Sellinger School.
The Sellinger School's business law program focuses on critical social justice issues and global awareness with a legal environment of business course required for all business majors, and popular electives in global labor rights, international business law, Ignatian spirituality and the law, and sports law. Three of the five faculty in the law and social responsibility department have been named Loyola's teacher of the year. The department co-sponsors Loyola's annual Ethics Week, a series of speakers and presentations that address ethical business and social issues.
This is the Sellinger School's second appearance in Businessweek's latest specialty rankings, which are released one at a time over a period of weeks. The Sellinger School ranked No. 5 in the country on the top undergraduate marketing programs list, released in May.
Overall, the Sellinger School was recently ranked No. 53 on Businessweek’s "Best Undergraduate Business Schools 2013," the only ranked undergraduate program in the state of Maryland.
