From humble beginnings with only two part-time professors and eight students in their first class, the school has grown to have 27,000 alumni, over 100 faculty members, and 3,000 students.

Along with numerous graduate degrees and certificate programmes, including the traditional MBA and specialised master's degrees, the school offers a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, a Master of Healthcare Administration, and a Master of Public Administration.
