Historical NoteReturn to Top

The University of Oregon began offering business courses in 1876 and eight years later a four-year commerce curriculum was established. Originally called the School of Commerce, it was renamed the School of Business Administration in 1920. In 1923, the University of Oregon awarded its first MBA. In 1967 the School of Business Administration became the College of Business Administration, consisting of the Undergraduate School of Business and the Graduate School of Management.

In 1989, Charles H. Lundquist funded an endowment to create the Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Oregon's College of Business. In 1993, he enhanced that initial investment, and in recognition of his generosity the college was renamed the Lundquist College of Business (LCB) in honor of Lundquist.

The LCB is housed in the Lillis complex on the UO campus.
