From the University's inception in 1930, the study of business has been a popular curriculum. When the first bachelor's degrees were awarded in 1956, fourteen of the fifteen degrees were to students with a concentration in business. In 1961, the School of Business was established, the first autonomous school on campus. The graduate program began in 1964 with the master of business administration degree. In August 1986, when the Department of Urban Studies and Public Administration was transferred from the School of Arts and Letters, the official designation became the College of Business and Public Administration. The Graduate School of Business and Public Administration administers the graduate programs of the College. Graduate degrees in business administration, accounting, economics, public administration, and urban studies are offered.

The College is distinguished in the following ways:

  • Accredited by AACSB International (one of only 430 out of over 1,200 U.S. institutions awarding business degrees) and NASPAA.
  • Offers high quality academic programs in Accounting, Decision Sciences, Economics, Finance, Information Systems, International Business, Management and Marketing.
  • Sponsors student chapters of nine professional business organizations as well as honor societies of Beta Alpha Psi, Beta Gamma Sigma, and Omicron Delta Epsilon.
  • Assigns major emphasis to the international dimensions of business and develops relationships and exchange opportunities with foreign institutions for faculty and students.
  • Sponsors an expanding Entrepreneurial Center which fosters the creation and development of new enterprise.
  • Oversees the Center for Insurance and Financial Services which is supported by an endowment of more than $600,000 provided by area firms and professionals.
  • Receives active support for faculty and students from its alumni, more than half of whom reside within a 100-mile radius of the campus.
  • Leads the University in interaction with the business community in Hampton Roads, which is the 28th largest population center in the nation.
