About Us

Almost 100 years old, the University of Montana School of Business Administration is the oldest AACSB-accredited business school in the state. Today it enjoys a reputation as a premier provider of business education in the region. Its goal is to help students realize their potential and thrive as future business leaders.

The School of Business focuses on applied, experiential education by having students participate in hands-on business projects.  Specific attention is given to professional networking. Because the school is nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in a spectacular natural environment, it attracts the interest of international and national business experts.  Over one hundred business professionals came to the Gallagher Business Building last year to share their knowledge through formal lectures and to talk with and recruit students.

Faculty dedication to excellence in teaching and research provides inspiration and support both inside and outside the classroom, helping students individually realize their potential. Student test scores and strong alumni relationships are testimony to the fact students thrive while attending the University of Montana School of Business.
