Black School of Business

A Best Business School

—U.S. News & World Report, The Princeton Review

Black School of Business students benefit from all the resources of a global research institution while enjoying all the advantages of learning in a smaller, multidisciplinary setting. We educate in a high-tech academic environment, the Jack Burke Research and Economic Development Center, and offer unique learning opportunities made possible by a $20 million endowment from the late insurance executive Samuel P. Black Jr. and his wife, Irene.
