History of the College

The College of Business Administration was established in 1962, but the study of business at K-State goes back to 1866 when a course entitled Farm Bookkeeping was added to the Agriculture curriculum. The History of the College centers around not only the events in its evolution, but also the people Involved in making it what it is today.
