The annual La Salle University School of Business Golf Outing, renamed the Friends of Brother Gerry Fitzgerald Golf Outing in 2011, has grown to attract more than 100 attendees. Each year, we welcome alumni, corporate partners, and friends of the School of Business who come together in support of our students.
This year's honoree will be MarySheila McDonald, J.D.
MarySheila E. McDonald, J.D. was named Dean of La Salle University’s School of Business in July, 2017 after a comprehensive national search. McDonald joined La Salle in March 2011 as the School’s Associate Dean and served as Interim Dean for seven months. McDonald earned her Bachelor’s degree from College of the Holy Cross and her Juris Doctor from Temple University School of Law.
As Interim Dean, she facilitated the development and launch of La Salle’s new 100% online MBA, worked to increase undergraduate enrollment, and helped to launch a partnership with Uber, their first with a Philadelphia university, to bring convenient and low-cost transportation to students, faculty and staff.
Under her watch, the School of Business received several external recognitions including the Princeton Review’s list of Best 294 Business Schools 2017—La Salle’s first inclusion in this prestigious citation- as well recent rankings in US News and World Report’s Best MBA programs and Best Job placement for Full-time MBA programs. McDonald has raised the media profile of the Business School’s programs through her appearances and commentary on local TV and radio. Her research interests include the legal and ethical issues of social networking and its impact on employment decisions; legal and ethical issues surrounding students with intellectual disabilities access and success in postsecondary education and insights on current workplace place issues and the changing landscape for professional women. Publications include articles in academic journals, a co-authored book chapter, and op-ed and book review pieces for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
McDonald was responsible for maintaining the AACSB accreditation for the School of Business and creating the Dean’s Student Advisory Board. She helped re-establish the Delta Sigma Pi professional fraternity, the largest student organization in the school.
