University of Colorado – Denver Business School
The University of Colorado dates back to 1883 with the establishment of the medical school on the Boulder campus. CU Denver came to be in 1912, originally as an extension of CU Boulder, and finally gained its independence in 1973. In 1985, the Denver Business School was established.
The Denver Business School maintains two locations: one located in the heart of downtown Denver in its own dedicated building, just blocks from the bustling 16th Street Mall and less than a mile from Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies. The other location is in South Denver, 20 miles south of the city, in the Liniger Building. Prior to 1990, students took classes on several different campuses within the CU system, including Boulder, Auraria, and Anschutz. In 1990, CU Denver acquired the current buildings in the prime downtown location, allowing its students to enjoy a centralized campus experience. The school is walking distance from the large majority of Denver businesses, providing perfect opportunities for both internships and networking events.
The Denver Business School is located less than 30 miles away from the Denver International Aiport.
The Denver Business School employs 160 faculty members across eleven specialized disciplines: accounting & taxation, business analytics, finance, entrepreneurship, health administration, information systems, international business, management, managing for sustainability, marketing, and taxation. The 11-month, full-time program has 13 faculty members specifically dedicated to that degree option.
