For Edwin F. Hale Sr. -- a community college dropout from Highlandtown who now heads First Mariner Bank -- the honorary doctorate he received yesterday at Towson University was a gesture of respect by a pedigree-conscious world from which he has often felt estranged. But for the business students Hale addressed, the bachelor's and master's degrees conferred were much more than symbolic -- representing years of classwork and, in many cases, tickets to jobs with firms like Hale's. In his first university commencement speech, Hale assured the newly minted Towson grads that their diplomas, and the reputation of their public college, carried serious currency in the world of finance.

Wait until the host begins eating before picking up a fork. These tips sound like lessons out of charm school. But college students across the country are signing up for etiquette instruction with more frequency since a growing number of schools are providing the training to better prepare their graduates for the workplace.

Retail sales will grow at a slower pace than expected this year - the slowest rate of growth in a decade - because of the war with Iraq and the weak economy, the nation's biggest retail trade group said yesterday in a revised forecast. The National Retail Federation said it now expects sales to rise 3.8 percent in 2003 compared with last year, rather than the 5.6 percent it projected in January. Last year, consumers spent $907.6 billion on general merchandise, apparel, furniture, home furnishings, electronics, sporting goods, books and music, a 5.1 percent increase over sales in 2001, the NRF said.

WHEN A COLLEGE-bound student asks, "What course should I take?" the response is frequently, "Take a business course; you can always use business." Seven college students from central county went significantly beyond one course by attending the Pamplin College of Business at Virginia Polytechnic Institute in Blacksburg, Va. The college was ranked in the top 50 business schools in a recent survey by U.S. News and World Report. Among the seven local Pamplin students is Severna Park resident Erin Brunst, 22, who graduated in May with a bachelor's degree in marketing management, with a concentration in global business.

A year and a half ago, Baltimore financier Larry D. Unger suddenly found his 26-year career eliminated by consolidation, that late 20th-century business rage. Now, he has invented what he hopes will become another industry wave: an electronic business card.A professional made obsolete by the turn of global events, the 48-year-old entrepreneur does not expect to phase out the paper business card, one of the last holdouts from the office-culture pTC revolution. Yet other standbys have all but vanished with the relentless march of technology -- carbon copies, typewriters, a live voice on the other end of the telephone line.

After decades of concentration on establishing its academic respectability, a job that is now well advanced, Loyola College's Sellinger School of Business and Management is about to practice what some of its professors preach.Led by a new dean who peppers his conversation with business-school phrases such as "strategic marketing" and "information revolution" -- but means them as guidance the institution must apply to itself -- the school is about to undergo a reassessment of its relations with everyone from its own alumni and students to the Maryland business community.
