In 1920, the University of Minnesota became the 18th school to be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). AACSB accreditation assures quality and promotes excellence and continuous improvement in undergraduate and graduate business education worldwide.
AACSB International is an association of educational institutions, businesses, and other organizations devoted to the advancement of higher education in management education. It is also the premier accrediting agency of collegiate business schools and accounting programs worldwide.
Located at the University of Minnesota on the west bank of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis and part of one of the leading public research land grant universities in the country, the Carlson School of Management has a rich history of preparing and educating the world's current and future business leaders.
Since its founding in 1919 as the University of Minnesota School of Business, the school has grown, changed names, and moved locations, all while maintaining a continued commitment to excellence. This evolution has been helped through the generosity of many business partners, most notably Curt Carlson and Herbert M. Hanson, Jr.
In 1986, Curt Carlson, successful entrepreneur, alumnus, and namesake of the Carlson School, donated the funds to build the School's current home, the spacious, state-of-the-art Carlson School of Management building. In 2008, Herbert M. Hanson, Jr., benefactor and University alumnus, supported the construction of Hanson Hall, effectively consolidating the Carlson School's undergraduate classrooms, services, and programs in one location.
