The Whitman School, formally the College of Business Administration, was established in 1919. In 1920, it was only the 16th collegiate business school in the nation to be accredited by the AACSB. In 1948, the school launched its MBA program and the doctoral program was created in 1965. 

The school was honored with a naming gift from Martin Whitman ’49, founder of Third Avenue Management, and Lois Whitman in 2003.
