About Howard University School of Business
Howard University has been offering management and business education since 1870, when the Board of Trustees of Howard University approved the establishment of a School of Commerce in conjunction with the Freedman’s Saving Bank and Trust Company. In 1946, the Marketing, Accounting, Real Estate and Insurance programs were added to the School’s educational curriculum.
Today’s School of Business Is One of the Best
In 1970, the present-day Howard School of Business was founded. As the School’s prominence has grown, so has its enrollment, so that it is now the second largest among the schools and colleges within Howard University.
Howard University’s School of Business has more African-American alumni employed by Wall Street firms, have become Certified Public Accountants, and are represented at top graduate schools than any other university in the country.
Coveted accreditation by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International has been consistently awarded to the Howard School of Business. In fact, it became the first in Washington, D.C. to achieve that world-recognized distinction.
While today’s students benefit from the tradition of excellence that has long set Howard University apart, they also profit from the Business School’s continuous efforts to update its programs to prepare students to meet the complex challenges of the global marketplace. Students enrolled in the School of Business will experience working with a faculty of business experts intent on preparing tomorrow’s leaders today.
