A glimpse into our past
The College of Business has a long and storied history as a builder of business experts. Founded in 1956, the College was led in its earliest days by founding dean Robert Weems. The College enjoyed the fast-track to success: within 16 months of opening its doors, the College's Bureau of Business and Economic Research gained full membership in the national organization, the Associated University Bureaus of Business and Economic Research. The swiftness of the accomplishment set a new record.
