About The Howard University School of Business: 
The Howard University School of Business, as it is known today, was founded 40 years ago. The School of Business began however as an institution of learning that trained students in the field of business in 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. The school and Bank ventures were discontinued only four years later but the seeds that were sown endured and led to the reopening of the school in 1903. At reopening, the school initially offered a Bachelors of Science Degree that would be reclassified, a year later, as a secondary-level training program for the next thirteen years.

Forty three years after the school reopened, in 1946, the Marketing, Accounting, and Real Estate and Insurance programs were added to the school’s educational curriculum. In 1970, the present-day School of Business was founded, with Dr. Milton Wilson as Dean. Over the years that followed, the School of Business’ prominence within Howard University grew, as the school became the second largest among schools and colleges within the University in terms of enrollment, and firmly established its reputation for excellence in both the academic and business communities.
