The University of Baltimore was founded in 1925 as a private institution. Its founders were a group of Baltimore civic leaders who wanted to provide low-cost, part-time evening study in business and law for working adults.
Its first site was at the southeast corner of St. Paul and Mt. Vernon Place with a class of 62 law students and 114 business students.
Today, in a marketplace that competes for business students, UBalt remains steadfast in its career-focused philosophy that has served students for more than 97 years. The School of Business has been an integral part of the history of the University of Baltimore and the surrounding community, and continues to gain momentum as it strives to make excellence accessible to all our ambitious, hard working and resilient business students.
