Dean, Sellinger School of Business and Management

Loyola University Maryland

Baltimore, Maryland


Loyola University Maryland (Loyola) seeks an experienced, innovative, and strategic leader to serve as dean of the Sellinger School of Business and Management (Sellinger or Sellinger School). This is an exceptional opportunity for a mission-driven, collaborative individual to elevate the Sellinger School and position it as the top business school in Baltimore and the surrounding region.


Founded in 1852, Loyola is one of 27 Jesuit institutions of higher education in the United States. The community includes approximately 5,282 undergraduate and graduate students, more than 506 full- and part-time faculty, 682 staff and administrators, and nearly 70,000 alumni. Attracting students primarily from the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast, Sellinger offers interdisciplinary and business undergraduate degrees, as well as master’s degrees in business and accounting, to approximately 1,600 students. Jesuit values are infused into the curriculum and the community, including that of Cura Personalis – care for the mind, body, and spirit – and a deep respect for diversity and difference.


There is much for the new dean to build upon. Sellinger is highly rated by both Business Week and U.S. News & World Report, and the 56 dedicated faculty members are known for their exceptional classroom teaching, strong research portfolios, meaningful relationships with students, and commitment to innovation. The more than 20,000 Sellinger alumni boast excellent placement rates upon graduation and contribute their talent to organizations throughout the Baltimore community, the Mid-Atlantic, and beyond, and occupy senior leadership roles in many top organizations.


In its next dean, Sellinger seeks a visionary and a strategist who will creatively enhance the School’s reputation, brand, and visibility. This dean will ensure the continued high quality of the curriculum and programs in a competitive market; expand enrollment at both undergraduate and graduate levels; draw upon external stakeholders, including volunteer leaders, alumni, and the Baltimore business community; promote outstanding research; and foster a welcoming, inclusive culture that supports and elevates all forms of diversity across all constituencies. Reporting to the provost, this dean must bring a collaborative approach, a willingness to invite new and innovative ideas from the community, and the requisite humility to serve others. Significant leadership experience in a higher education setting or a large, complex organization is essential.
