Loyola University Maryland graduates are able to meet the needs of professional organizations in this changing world. Again and again, employers report that they have discovered Loyola graduates bring flexibility and an eagerness and ability to adapt to change to the workplace.
Loyola students pursue a wide variety of traditional academic majors with a strong foundation in the liberal arts, emphasized particularly in Loyola College, the school of arts and sciences. The Sellinger School of Business and Management is nationally ranked, and Loyola's longstanding tradition of graduating exceptional teachers will only be enhanced through the new School of Education.
Loyola alumni blend a sound academic foundation with an enthusiasm for learning that makes them dynamic employees who produce results.

“We love Loyola students. They are extremely prepared to enter the workforce. Their coursework and curriculum and variety of internships make them so well-rounded. They are always eager to learn, articulate, bright, and do an excellent job of representing their school. Last year, we had so many students from Loyola in our marketing department that I called it `Loyola row.’”

“The liberal arts education provided at Loyola captures the very spirit of the competitive new hire that is sought after by my organization. In the rise of the Talent Age, personnel with excellent communication skills, problem-solving abilities, uncompromising integrity, and the maturity to express themselves are valuable beyond technical skills alone. Loyola offers our company the balance of skill and insight that turn managers into leaders, and delivers value to the bottom line. I can count on Loyola to provide me students who crave instant responsibility and a chance to put into use the theories they have just learned in the classroom.”

“I started recruiting Loyola students 28 years ago, and have gone back every year since—twice a year. Loyola produces a well-rounded student. Overall, I would say that they write better, problem-solve better, and present better than graduates of other schools. Because of their course load and the Jesuit approach, I’ve found them to be morally better grounded. There’s a consistency of high quality coming from Loyola. In offices around the country, Loyola graduates are recognized as top-quality—people that you never have to worry about.”
