David Eccles School of Business, University of Utah


The David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah has a long history of excellence in business education that spans more than 100 years.

From its beginnings in 1896 as part of the Economics and Sociology Department, it quickly became obvious that there was a great need to educate students in the ways of business. In 1917, it became the School of Commerce and Finance, and enrolled a respectable 126 students in its first year as an official school. In less than 80 years, that enrollment figure has increased over 25 times.

Today, the David Eccles School of Business has nearly 3,500 students in four departments of study, housed in four buildings all designed with the purpose of business education. In little more than 100 years, the David Eccles School has risen to the forefront of business excellence.

We certainly have the accolades to set us apart from most business schools. Of over 2,000 business schools recognized by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the David Eccles School of Business is consistently ranked among the top 100 business schools in the world by respectable publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Business Week and U.S. News & World Report. Among our nearly 25,000 alumni are some of the nation's most respected CEOs and business leaders.

Thousands of our graduates work in top corporate jobs in the nation and internationally.

What the David Eccles School has is a spirit reflecting a commitment to quality education and a willingness to have fun in the process.

The David Eccles School does things just a little differently, starting with orientation programs that incorporate community service, organizing courses around actual company projects, and pairing students with alumni mentors in significant corporate positions, including many CEOs. What you get is an experience-enriched education - our goal is to graduate people who can talk to recruiters about the projects they have done for companies, not just courses on their transcripts.

The David Eccles School of Business is on the move. With its many innovative programs and numerous faculty members who have taught at the most prestigious business schools in the nation, the David Eccles School is a very exciting place. Take a look around and pay us a visit. I think you will discover our spirit and understand the importance of an experience-enriched education. We have the history to prove it and the programs to deliver it.
