Marquette University, College of Business Administration


Wisconsin, USA

Marquette University is a private, coeducational, Jesuit, Roman Catholic university located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Established as Marquette College on August 28, 1881 by the Society of Jesus, it was founded by John Martin Henni, the first Catholic bishop of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. The university was named after 17th century missionary and explorer Father Jacques Marquette, with the intention to provide an affordable Catholic education to the area's emerging German immigrant population. Initially an all-male institution, Marquette became the first coed Catholic university in the world in 1909, when it began admitting its first female students.

Marquette is one of 28 member institutions of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. The university is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and currently has a student body of about 12,000. Marquette is one of the largest Jesuit universities in the United States, and the largest private university in Wisconsin.

Marquette is organized into 11 schools and colleges at its main Milwaukee campus, offering programs in the liberal arts, business, communications, education, engineering, law and various health sciences disciplines. The university also administers classes in suburbs around the Milwaukee area and in Washington, DC. While most students are pursuing undergraduate degrees, the university has over 50 doctoral and master's degree programs and 37 graduate certificate programs.

The university's varsity athletic teams, known as the Golden Eagles, are members of the Big East Conference and compete in the NCAA's Division I in all sports. In 2014, U.S. News & World Report ranked Marquette 75th among national universities. Forbes ranked Marquette 87th among American research universities in 2013.

The College of Business Administration, founded in 1910, was among the first 40 schools to earn accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business-International (AACSB) in 1928. Other notable members of that first accreditation group are Harvard University, Northwestern University, University of Chicago, University of Illinois, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania and University of Wisconsin. 

The MBA program was established in 1953 and the Executive MBA program was launched in 1996. The Graduate School of Management was established in July 2006 and is part of the College of Business Administration, reporting to the Dean of the College. The College of Business Administration has more than 20,000 alumni worldwide. The College of Business Administration serves more than 1,500 undergraduate students and over 700 master’s students. The College has 58 tenure track faculty in five academic departments: Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management, and Marketing.
