Carroll School of Management – Boston College

History

The Carroll School of Management is Boston College’s graduate and undergraduate business school. The undergraduate business school was founded in 1938, and the graduate business school opened its doors in 1957. Both schools were renamed in 1989 in honor of Wallace E. Carroll, a 1928 alumnus of Boston College, following his generous donation of $10 million. In addition to an undergraduate Bachelor of Science program and its MBA offerings, the Carroll School awards Master of Science degrees in accounting and finance and supports two doctoral programs. The Carroll School is fully accredited in business education by AACSB International.
