Founded in 1910, the John Cook School of Business is the 15th oldest business school in the nation. The school is accredited by the AACSB and offers undergraduate, Masters and Ph.D. degrees to more than 1,700 stu dents per academic year.

While many schools are members of AACSB or are recognized by AACSB, Saint Louis University's business school is one of the few area schools that is accredited by the AACSB, the International Association for Management Education, the premier accrediting body of business schools. Accreditation by AACSB ensures continuous quality improvement in collegiate schools of business in terms of the curriculum, instructional resources, student selection, and career planning and placement, and the intellectual contributions and qualifications of the faculty.

Business school facilities have increased 75% with a 60,000-square-foot, $15 million expansion that opened in September 2000. Named John and Lucy Cook Hall, the addition is designed with students in mind, featuring ample study rooms, a café, a beautiful commons and computer docking stations throughout the building. Those stations provide student access to the internet, enabling individual research and entry to sites for specific SLU classes where professors maintain current syllabi and other course information. The structure is open, light and airy, offering many comfortable gathering spots for you to study or socialize.
