The College of Business Administration developed from a single course in political
economy required of every student at the University of Nebraska in 1869.
In 1916, the College, with sixteen other universities including Harvard, Northwestern,
and the University of Texas, was a charter member of the Association to Advance
Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Nationally only a small percentage of the
schools offering undergraduate or graduate programs in business administration are
able to be accredited under the high standards set by the AACSB. The UNL College
of Business Administration was officially reaccredited in 2011.
In 2010, CBA, along with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln accepted an invitation
to join the Big Ten conference and the academic consortium of schools known as the
Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC). The College made the transition to
the Big Ten and the CIC on July 1, 2011, and currently partners with the member
schools to leverage campus resources and collaborate on innovative programs.
