Boston College. School of Management
Known as the School of Business Administration until 1940, and then as the College of Business Administration until October 1969, the Carroll School of Management held its first classes on September 19, 1938, at the Boston College Intown College at 126 Newbury Street.
The first Dean of the School was Dean James J, Kelley, SJ, who served as Dean from 1938 until 1948. During the 1940-1941 academic year the College of Business Administration moved from the Boston College Intown Center to the newly constructed Fulton Hall on the Chestnut Hill Campus.
In April 1956, the College of Business Administration was accredited by the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business. The College of Business Administration and the Graduate School of Business Management, which was originally part of the Evening College, merged in 1963, when the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business required that all business programs in an accredited institution be incorporated under a single authority.
In 1968, the College of Business Administration was renamed the School of Management. The Masters of Business Administration program received accreditation by the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business in 1975. In 1987 the M.S Computer Program was established and the Ph.D. program in Management with a finance concentration was authorized. During this year the School of Management received full accreditation by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. In March 1989, the School of Management was named the Wallace E. Carroll School of Management.
