The Daniels College of Business is one of twelve graduate programs at the University of Denver. Founded in 1908, the Daniels College of Business is the eighth oldest business school in the United States. Daniels is a top-ranked American business school and currently enrolls approximately 2,293 students, divided between graduate, undergraduate programs, and dual undergraduate/graduate programs.


Daniels College of Business

Daniels is the eighth oldest collegiate business school in the country, and has been continuously accredited by AACSB International since 1923. It was established in 1908 as the School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance at the University of Denver, the oldest private university in the Rocky Mountain Region, founded in 1864. Its name was changed to the College of Business Administration in 1946 and then again in 1994 to the Daniels College of Business.

Classes were first held in downtown Denver in the Haish Building and, after moving several times, the Daniels College of Business Building opened in 1999. In 1989, Bill Daniels, a Denver cable television pioneer, presented the University of Denver with a challenge grant to update the graduate business curriculum. The redesigned program combined traditional disciplines such as finance, management and marketing with the development of ethics and value-based leadership.

Daniels building

The $22 million Daniels College of Business building was opened in 1999. The building houses breakout team study rooms and a commons area for informal student and faculty gatherings. It is also an “unwired” building, with wireless Internet and over 3,400 data and voice ports, an electronic business research center and a state-of-the-art IT laboratory.
