Office of The Dean


The mission of the Howard University School of Business is to provide a comprehensive business and management education to students of high academic potential, with particular emphasis upon the provision of educational opportunities for promising African American students who may not otherwise have an opportunity to acquire an education of the type provided at Howard University. Further, the School is dedicated to attracting and sustaining a cadre of faculty who, through their teaching and research, are committed to the development of distinguished graduates and to the quest for solutions to business and management problems in the United States and throughout the world.


The vision of the School of Business is defined and necessarily directed by the historical mission and core values of Howard University. As such, the School of Business must strive for excellence in providing management education and in producing research that seeks a solution to global business problems. The School's vision provides that the School of Business develop an agenda that reflects the needs of its core constituency (African Americans and people of color) and is recognized as a school of choice (undergraduate and graduate) by this constituency. Further, the School of Business must be a major contributor to the dialogue concerning economic empowerment for people of color and must also be recognized for producing research on economic empowerment and entrepreneurship. To summarize, the School of Business must create uniqueness in business education, research, and service that only Howard University can provide.


The School of Business was founded in 1970 with Dr. Milton Wilson as Dean and over time became the second largest School within the University, establishing its reputation for excellence in both the academic and business communities.   In 1976, the undergraduate program became the first in Washington, D.C. to be awarded accreditation from the AACSB.   When the MBA program gained AACSB accreditation in 1980, it likewise became the first in Washington, D.C. to receive AACSB accreditation.
