Boston College was founded by the Society of Jesus in 1863 and its classes commenced on 5th September, 1864 with 3 teachers and 22 students. The College had its original building in Harrison Avenue in Boston’s South End, before it moved to former Lawrence Farm in Chestnut Hill. The St. Mary’s Hall, Devlin Hall and Bapst Library, which are still an integral part of the campus, came into being in the years 1917, 1924 and 1928 respectively. The College of Business Administration, which is now called Wallace E. Carroll School of Management, saw its inception in 1938. The School acquired its current name due to $10million funding from Wallace E. Carroll of Katy Industries.
The Carroll School of Management educates undergraduates preparing for careers in management, graduate students aspiring to greater responsibilities in a complex global economy and practitioners and executives seeking renewed vision and new skills for that economy. Vigorous teaching and learning, and research that advances business theory and enhances management practice are crucial means to these ends. Our current efforts are a partnership of students, faculty, staff, the business community, and the broader academic community. We seek and value the support and counsel of our alumni and the wider business community. We aspire to be an effective and caring organization for our immediate community, and we strive to direct all our efforts for the service of the many communities-local, national and global-which sustain us.
