Whitman School of Management – Syracuse University

School Overview

The Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University was originally founded in 1919 as the College of Business Administration, earning an Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation in 1920—just the 16th business school, at the time, to do so.

Less than 30 years later, in 1948, the business school launched its first official MBA program. In 1977, the school launched its one-of-a-kind long-distance MBA.

Third Avenue Funds founder and Syracuse College of Business alum Martin Whitman (’49) and his wife Lois Whitman donated $23 million to the business school. In honor of the donation, the Syracuse renamed its business school as the Martin J. Whitman School of Management.
