Our History

Out of humble beginnings in one of our youngest states, ASU's W. P. Carey School of Business has accomplished extraordinary things. We are pleased and proud to share some of our history and achievements. It is a story of visionaries, beginning with the school's founders and early pioneers. It is a story of innovation and leadership, in which faculty, staff, students, and administrators forged new areas of study for a world changed by technology and globalization. And it is a personal story, of men and women who loved their life's work, who came to campus each day excited to implement their ideas and interact with students.

What is most striking about this story, though, is that it is still being written. We are proud of where we came from — and even more excited about where we are going.
