History of the Herberger Business School

In 1938, the St. Cloud Teacher’s College created a business office and office administration department staffed by two faculty members. By 1948, the program evolved into a business administration program that employed six business faculty. During the 1960’s, the department evolved into a college with an MBA and internship program.

In 1976, with five departments and 42 full-time faculty, the college earned AACSB accreditation, distinguishing itself from other business colleges as providing a quality business educational experience comparable to Ivy League institutions. Today, we are one of two business schools in Minnesota to hold AACSB accreditation for 45+ years showing a long-standing record of excellence.

In 1999, the Herberger family endowed the college, which was renamed the G.R. Herberger College of Business.

In 2007, the G.R. Herberger College of Business moved into the renovated Centennial Hall. The new facility enhanced the college’s ability to educate students and serve the business community. In 2011, the college was renamed the Herberger Business School.
