For 50 years, the College of Business has been enriched by those who have studied, taught, and worked here. Celebrate and reminisce with us.
Starting a business college in the 1960s was not an easy task. But amidst the social complexities of the decade that included a mistrust of big business, and at a time when business education meant little more than typing and transcription, Colorado State University wanted more for its business students.
CSU founded the College of Business in January 1966 under the direction of the first dean of the college, Don Dobler. Dobler built the College of Business on a foundation fortified by his own vision that business, carried out with integrity and skill, is a force for good that can solve complex problems and change the world. He set the tone for how we do business today – in our teaching, in our research, and in our practice.
We have enjoyed tremendous support from so many individuals and groups to make this possible.
50 Scholarships for 50 Years
Students are why we are here. Every student’s learning, personal growth, and professional development is important to us. We offer support in the classroom and beyond to make sure we are giving all business students the opportunities they need to realize their full potential as leaders ready to change the world for the better. Because it's our mission to transform lives and deliver a quality, affordable, business education, we aim to commemorate our 50th anniversary by working with our loyal friends, alumni, and donors to create 50 new scholarships for College of Business Students students in 2016.
