Historical Note

The University of San Diego School of Business was established as an undergraduate program in 1972. A year later, a graduate component was added. In 1980 and 1981 respectively, the undergraduate and graduate schools of business received accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). In 1984, with a $4.5 million grant from the Olin Foundation, the School of Business moved into Olin Hall. In 1993, the School created the Ernest Hahn Endowed Chair of Real Estate Finance to honor Ernest Hahn, the first lay chairman of the USD Board of Trustees.
The School of Business has grown to offer many degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate level as well as expanding their reach internationally. Six Centers and Institutes have been established including the Ahlers Center for International Business, which was founded in 1994.
