Palumbo-Donahue Graduate School of Business – Duquesne University


The A. J. Palumbo School of Business Administration was established in 1913 as the School of Accounts and Finance. The name was changed to “School of Business Administration” in 1931 so as reflect the expansion of its course offerings. By 1961, the School had earned accreditation by the AACSB, joining the less than 30 percent of business schools nationwide who have achieved this distinction and currently hold the accreditation today. With an October 1991 endowment by Antonio J. Palumbo, the current name was adopted: the A.J. Palumbo School of Business Administration.
